Keith Stroud will be the man in charge of the clash between Derby County and Leeds United.

The Hampshire official has taken charge of 22 games this season showing 95 yellow cards and 7 reds.

Stroud infuriated Leeds fans earlier this season when he took charge of their home game against Middlesbrough when he. Awarded Middlesbrough a penalty after consulting his assistant following a tangle between Leeds defender Luke Ayling and Boro`s Daniel Ayala.

Ayala clearly fouled Ayling first but he awarded a penalty after Ayling grabbed the leg of Ayala in the aftermath of the original incident.

He has taken charge of Derby on one previous occasion this season when they were beaten 4-2 by Reading at home.

Referee: KEITH STROUD (Hampshire)
Assistants: John Flynn and Billy Smallwood
Fourth Official : Robert Jones
