Mike Pike takes centre stage

Last updated : 06 February 2004 By Michael Morris
The assistants are Dave Cooke and Andy Hendley, both from the West Midlands.

It doesn't always work out, last week we should have had Howard Webb but Phillip Walton took over as a late replacement. Webb was doing a Premiership game.

If Mike Pike does officiate it will be his first time in charge of City since a 1 - 1 draw at Blackpool in December 2001.

In 23 games this season, several in Division 1, he's dished out 39 yellow cards and 4 red.
