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

Blackburn Rovers host Rochdale on Tuesday December 26 for the game at Ewood Park and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Michael Salisbury
Assistant Refs: Peter Gooch and Barry Cropp
Fourth Official: Joe Hull

Match Day referee Salisbury has officiated 20 games in 2017/18, showing 47 yellow cards and two red cards so far.

He was new to the Football League in 2016 having been on National League duty in 2015/16.

He took in 31 games in 2016/17 with a return of 107 yellow cards and nine red cards.

His highest card count that year was seven yellow cards and one red in the game between Stevenage and Portsmouth.

In the National League last season though he took in 20 games, with a return of 25 yellow cards and three red cards.

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