Referees for next two matches confirmed.
The referees for the Nottingham Forest and Bristol City away games have been confirmed. For Saturdays game against Nottingham Forest, Tyne and Wear Referee Andy Haines will be the man in the middle. Haines last refereed Watford in Janaury 2011 when Watford beat Scunthrope United at Glamford Park 2-1. The match will be remembered for the stadium lights going out three times during the second half meaning that the match finished an hour behind all the other 3 o clock kick offs due to the delays until the pitch lights and stadium lights came back on. Mr Haines has refereed 19 games this season handing out 55 yellow cards and one red.
For the Bristol City game on Tuesday night (Which was meant to be played on Bozing Day), the referee will be Surrey official Carl Berry. Berry has refereed Watford once this season which was in the 1-0 win over Wycombe Wanderers in the Capital One Cup which was the first game of the season. He has refereed 19 games handing out 53 yellow cards and 6 red. See the full appointments below:
