The Football Association have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Manchester City this Saturday.

Huddersfield Town host Manchester City on Saturday February 18 for the FA Cup Fifth Round tie at the John Smith’s Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Anthony Taylor

Match Day referee Taylor has officiated 28 games in 2016/17 with a return of 109 yellow cards and three red cards.

This season his highest card count is eight yellow cards in the game between Leicester City and West Ham. He also showed eight yellow cards in the game between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

He took in 44 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 147 yellow cards and six red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Watford and Crystal Palace on September 27 with a total of eight yellows being shown.

Let`s hope it`s not another repeat and more of our players edge closer to automatic bans.
