The Football Association have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Bolton Wanderers and Huddersfield Town this Saturday.

Bolton Wanderers host Huddersfield Town on Saturday January 6 for the FA Cup Third Round tie at the Macron Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Roger East
Assistant Refs: Andrew Halliday and Jonathan Hunt
Fourth Official: Martin Coy

Match Day referee East has officiated 15 games in 2017/18, showing 49 yellow cards and two red cards.

He took in 33 games in 2016/17 with a return of 140 yellow cards and five red cards.

His highest card that year was eight yellow cards which he showed in matches between Oxford v Millwall, MK Dons v Northampton and Brighton v Ipswich Town.

He took charge of 39 matches in 2015/16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 119 yellow cards and two red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Brighton and Sheffield Wednesday in May with a total of eight yellows being shown.

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