Officials - Blackpool v Gillingham (21/11/17)

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

Blackpool host Gillingham on Tuesday November 21 for the game at Bloomfield Road and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Darren Drysdale
Assistant Refs: Gary Hilton and Mark Cunliffe
Fourth Official: Matthew Parry

The Match Day referee has officiated 19 games in 2017/18, showing 49 yellow cards and three red cards already.

He took in 22 games so far in 2016/17, with a return of 67 yellow cards and three red cards.

His highest card count so far that year was nine yellows in the game between Bury and Oxford United.

He took in 34 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 80 yellow cards and two red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Blackburn Rovers and Derby County on October 21 with a total of six yellows being shown. He followed that in his next game between Walsall and Gillingham with another six.

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