The EFL have confirmed that Darren England will be the man in the middle when Derby County take on East Midlands neighbours Nottingham Forest at Pride Park Stadium on Saturday afternoon in their latest behind-closed-doors fixture in the Sky Bet Championship (12:30pm kick-off).

England has overseen 29 games during the 2019/20 season and produced a total of 77 yellow cards and just one red.

His last match in charge of Derby came at the end of January in the 0-0 draw at Northampton Town in the Fourth Round of the Emirates FA Cup.

England also took charge of the meeting between Derby and Forest earlier in the season as the Reds ran out 1-0 winners at the City Ground, while his only previous outing at Pride Park this season was the 1-1 draw at home to Cardiff City in September.

He will be assisted by Nik Barnard and James Wilson on the lines, whilst Darren Drysdale has been appointed as the fourth official.
