Officials - Blackburn v Shrewsbury (13/1/18)

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

Blackburn Rovers host Shrewsbury Town on Saturday January 13 for the game at Ewood Park and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: John Brooks
Assistant Refs: Matthew Jones and Kevin Mulraine
Fourth Official: Scott Oldham

Match Day referee Brooks has officiated 30 games in 2017/18 showing 93 yellow cards and four red cards so far.

In 2016/17 he was new to the Football League, having taken charge of 21 games at National League level the season before.

Last season he took in 36 games, showing 150 yellow cards and ten red cards.

He showed nine straight yellow cards in the Bristol Rovers v Gillingham clash, and showed eight yellows and one red on two occasions throughout the season.

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