For the third time this season, Stephen Martin takes charge of one of our fixture when we welcome Blackburn Rovers to town this evening.
The Staffordshire-based ref was on duty in our second game of the season when we visited Nottingham Forest, and then at Madejski Stadium when Middlesbrough were our guests in December. Regrettably, both 1-0 defeats for Reading.
Likewise he has taken charge of two Rovers games this term; their 1-1 draw with Aston Villa, as the Midlands club notched a stoppage-time leveller, and then their incredible 3-2 defeat to Leeds United when Kemar Roofe netted twice in stoppage time to turn a loss into a victory for the hosts.
Assistant referees for the evening are Dean Treleaven and Graham Kane, while John Busby will be fourth official.
