The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Birmingham City and Huddersfield Town this Saturday.

Birmingham City host Huddersfield Town on Saturday April 29 for the game at St Andrew’s Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Michael Jones
Linesmen: Mark Scholes and Michael McDonough
Fourth Official: David Coote

Match Day referee Jones has officiated 28 games in 2016/17, with a return of 112 yellow cards and four red cards.

This season his highest card count was seven yellows and one red in the Accrington v Morecambe game. He also showed eight yellows and one red in the game Sheffield United and Scunthorpe United.

He took in 40 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 131 yellow cards and three red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Crystal Palace and Bournemouth on February 2 with a total of seven yellow cards shown. Seven were also shown between Crystal Palace and Bournemouth on February 2.

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