Birmingham-based Andre Marriner will be the man in the middle when Chelsea visit CoMs on Saturday.

The 39-year-old is a Premier League veteran having been officiating in the top flight since 2004. He last year joined the list of international referees.

He is not renowned as a card sharp, averaging just 3.2 yellows per game last season, though he has dished out 17 in his last three Premier League games and one red to go along with them.

There are still a few tickets left for the match with the champions.
