Red & Yellow & Oh I'm Off...Walsall v Blackburn (24/2/18)

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

Walsall host Blackburn Rovers on Saturday February 24 for the game at the Bescot Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Ross Joyce
Assistant Refs: Matthew Jones and Alix Pashley
Fourth Official: Joe Hull

Match Day referee Joyce has officiated 32 games in 2017/18, showing 120 yellow cards and one red card already.

He took in 44 games in 2016/17 with a return of 182 yellow cards and 12 red cards.

His highest card count that year was eight yellows and one red in the game between Carlisle United and Exeter City.

He took in 29 matches in 2015/16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 106 yellow cards and six red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Gillingham and Port Vale in April where he showed eight yellow cards. Prior to that in the Mansfield and Wimbledon game in September he showed seven yellows and one red.

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