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

Blackburn Rovers host Fulham on Saturday August 27 for the game at Ewood Park and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Scott Duncan
Linesmen: Shaun Hudson and Joe Simpson
Fourth Official: Karl Evans

Match Day referee Duncan has officiated four games so far in 2016/17 with a return of eight yellow cards and one red card.

He took charge of 37 matches last season and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 97 yellow cards and four red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Mansfield Town and Accrington Stanley with seven yellows being shown. Prior to that Blackburn Rovers and Cardiff City in August saw five yellows being shown and that matched his first game of the season between Coventry and Wigan where the same number of yellows appeared.

Duncan started his career as an EFL referee in 2012/13, taking charge of Port Vale versus Barnet. Since then he has refereed more than 100 matches, including both League One and League Two Play-Off semi-finals and a Southern Area Final of the EFL Trophy.

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