Match Day Officials v Luton (18/5/17)

The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the League Two Play Off Semi Final against Luton this Thursday.

Blackpool travel to Luton Town in the Semi Final second leg decider over who gets one step closer to Wembley and League Two this season.

The game takes place on Thursday May 18 at Kenilworth Road and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Darren Deadman
Linesmen: Matthew Jones and Helen Byrne
Fourth Official: Ross Joyce

Match Day referee Deadman has officiated 48 games in 2016/17 with a return of 159 yellow cards and seven red cards.

His highest card count so far this season was eight yellows in the game between Wycombe Wanderers and West Ham U23s.

He took charge of 36 matches in 2015/16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 101 yellow cards and three red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Cardiff City and Leeds United on March 8 with a total of six yellows shown and one red.

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