Ref watch: Coote to take the whistle for Wanderers v Sunderland

David Coote will be the man in the middle when Wanderers host Sunderland in the Sky Bet Championship on Tuesday night.

Nottinghamshire-based Coote will be taking charge of his second match of the season at Macron Stadium having overseen Wanderers’ 2-1 victory over Sheffield Wednesday in October, whilst it will be his first ever time officiating a Sunderland game.

He made his Championship bow in January 2011 and has whistled 27 games so far this campaign, handing out 109 cautions and four early baths.

Nick Hopton and Paul Hodskinson will be his assistants, with Darren Bond holding the board as fourth official.
