Match Day Officials v Accrington (14/4/17)

The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Accrington Stanley this Friday.

Blackpool host Accrington Stanley on Friday April 14 for the game at Bloomfield Road and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Mark Brown
Linesmen: Michael Denton and Geoffrey Liddle
Fourth Official: Simon Mather

Match Day referee Brown has officiated 13 games so far in 2016-17 and in those games he showed a total of 31 yellow cards with one red card.

His highest card count this year was seven yellows in the game between Bury and Swindon Town.

He took in 35 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a total of 106 yellow cards and four red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Nottingham Forest and Birmingham on January 12 with six yellows and one red shown. He has shown six yellow cards in two games since then.

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