Referee confirmed for Forest game

Posted: Tue 10 Jan 2017

Referee Peter Bankes will take charge of Saturday's Sky Bet Championship fixture between Blues and Nottingham Forest at St. Andrew's (3pm kick-off).

So far this season the Merseyside-based official has refereed 21 games, where he has produced a total of 82 yellow cards and eight reds. 

The last Blues fixture he took charge of was our Championship away game against Cardiff City in May 2016.

That match ended in a 1-1 draw and there were six cautions dished out, including one each for Jonathan Spector and Maikel Kieftenbeld for the visitors.

Mr Bankes will be assisted by Adam Crysell and Geoffrey Russell.
