The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Blackburn Rovers and Bristol City this Monday.

Blackburn Rovers host Bristol City on Monday April 17 for the game at Ewood Park and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Michael Jones
Linesmen: Mark Scholes and Andrew Garratt
Fourth Official: Stuart Attwell

Match Day referee Jones has officiated 26 games in 2016/17, with a return of 101 yellow cards and four red cards.

This season his highest card count was seven yellows and one red in the Accrington v Morecambe game. He also showed eight yellows and one red in the game Sheffield United and Scunthorpe United.

He took in 40 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 131 yellow cards and three red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Crystal Palace and Bournemouth on February 2 with a total of seven yellow cards shown. Seven were also shown between Crystal Palace and Bournemouth on February 2.

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