The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Leeds United this Saturday.

Brighton travel to Leeds United on Saturday March 18 for the game at Elland Road and the match carries a 5.30pm kick off.

Referee: Lee Mason
Linesmen: Andy Halliday and Matthew Wilkes
Fourth Official: Stephen Martin

Match Day referee Mason has officiated 17 games in 2016/17 with a return of 63 yellow cards and two red cards.

His highest card count this season was eight yellows in the game between Leicester City and Middlesbrough in November. He also showed seven yellows and one red in the game between Manchester City and Burnley.

He took in 34 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 96 yellow cards and three red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Derby and Sheffield Wednesday in April with a total of nine yellows being shown. The Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough game in September saw eight yellows.

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