The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Brighton this weekend.

Blackburn Rovers host Brighton on Saturday January 16 for the game at Ewood Park and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Kevin Wright
Linesmen: Jonathan Hunt and Peter Wright
Fourth Official: David Webb

Match Day referee Wright (Cambridgeshire) is yet to officiate a Blackburn game this season.

He has however already taken in 20 other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a total of 59 yellow cards and three red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Shrewsbury and Gillingham on November 28 with a total of five yellows being shown. He’s shown four yellow cards on six occasions so far this year as well.

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