Paul Tierney appointed as referee for Manchester City vs Nottingham Forest

Tierney has officiated 22 games involving City throughout his career thus far; the Blues have won 19 of those 22 and only lost twice. A reasonably strong record that Pep Guardiola and his players will be hoping to build upon this Wednesday.


The most recent City game Tierney refereed saw Guardiola’s men comfortably overturn Leeds United away from home – beating them 4-0.
