The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Blackburn Rovers and Bury this Tuesday in the EFL Trophy.

Blackburn Rovers host Bury on Tuesday October 3 for the EFL Trophy tie at Ewood Park and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Scott Oldham
Assistant Refs: Nigel Smith and Darren Strain
Fourth Official: Anthony Backhouse

Match Day referee Oldham has officiated seven games in 2017/18, showing 12 yellow cards and one red card.

He took in 18 games in 2016/17 with a return of 49 yellow cards and zero red cards in his first year in the National League and this season sees him new to the Football League.

His highest card count that year was six yellow cards and he showed six on two occasions.

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