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

Brighton travel to Oxford United on Tuesday August 23 for the League Cup second round tie at the Kassam Stadium and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Andy Davies
Linesmen: Ravel Cheosiaua and Marvyn Amphlett
Fourth Official: Robert Massey-Ellis

Match Day referee Davies has officiated four games in 2016/17 with a return of 13 yellow cards and one red card.

He took charge of 36 matches last season and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 127 yellow cards and five red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Charlton and Leeds on December 12 with a total of eight yellow cards being shown. Wimbledon and Notts County on September saw seven yellows and he also showed seven in the November tie between MK Dons and Charlton.

A former player with a number of clubs at youth level, Davies capitalised on this experience to make a rapid rise through the refereeing ranks. He was appointed to the EFL Referees List in 2012/13 and since then has refereed over 100 EFL matches.

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