Stephen Martin will be the man in the middle when Derby County take on Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park on Friday evening in the Sky Bet Championship (6pm kick-off).

Martin has overseen 28 games so far this season and produced a total of 61 yellow cards and three red cards.

His last game featuring Derby was the 3-2 win at Millwall last July, with youngster Louie Sibley netting a hat-trick as the Rams returned to action following the COVID-19 outbreak with a victory.

Martin will be assisted by Nik Barnard and Wade Smith on the lines, whilst Jarred Gillett has been appointed as the fourth official.
