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

Blackburn Rovers host Preston North End on Saturday April 2 for the game at Ewood Park and the match carries a 12.30pm kick off.

Referee: Eddie Ilderton
Linesmen: Tom Nield and Graeme Fyvie
Fourth Official: Jeremy Simpson

Match Day referee Ilderton has officiated one Blackburn game this season.

He has however already taken in 26 other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a total of 53 yellow cards and three red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Notts County and York City on September 26 with a total of six yellows being shown.

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