Ref watch: Paul Tierney to oversee Blackburn derby clash

Confirmation of match officials for Friday night's derby clash with Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park

Paul Tierney will take charge of Wanderers’ Sky Bet Championship clash with Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park on Friday night.

The Lancashire-based official has history in this fixture, having ruled over both the Whites' 4-0 victory against Rovers at Macron Stadium in March 2014, and Blackburn’s 1-0 win at Ewood last season little over 12 months later.

Last season Tierney handed out 134 yellow cards and eight red cards from 37 matches, while this year he has dished out 15 cautions from his five outings so far.

Richard Wigglesworth and Steven Meredith will run the line, while Scott Duncan is the fourth official.
