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

Blackburn Rovers host Portsmouth on Saturday October 21 for the game at Ewood Park and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Stuart Attwell
Assistant Refs: Ian Hussin and Shaun Hudson
Fourth Official: Robert Jones

Match Day referee Attwell has officiated seven games in 2017/18, showing 19 yellow cards and one red card.

He took in 27 games in 2016/17 with a return of 90 yellow cards and eight red cards.

That season his highest card count was five yellows and three reds in the game between Brighton and Sheffield Wednesday. He showed seven yellows and two reds in the Oxford v Swindon Town game. He also showed seven yellows in the game between Southampton and Middlesbrough.

He took in 44 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 118 yellow cards and four red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Plymouth and Crawley on October 3 with a total of six yellows being shown.

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