Officials - Peterborough v Blackpool (18/11/17)

The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Peterborough United and Blackpool this Saturday.

Blackpool travel to Peterborough United on Saturday November 18 for the game at London Road and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Trevor Kettle
Assistant Refs: Callum Walchester and Rob Smith
Fourth Official: David Rock

Match Day referee Kettle has officiated 16 games in 2017/18, showing 57 yellow cards and three red cards so far.

He took in 35 games in the 2016/17 season, with a return of 137 yellow cards and six red cards.

That season he was most card happy in the match between Leyton Orient and Crawley Town where he showed ten yellow cards.

He took in 31 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 108 yellow cards and ten red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Preston North End and Wolverhampton Wanderers on September 26 with a total of six yellows being shown plus two reds. He also showed seven yellow cards in the Wimbledon v Morecambe game in October and backed that up in November with five yellows and two red in the match between Barnet and Mansfield.

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