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

Brighton host Preston North End on Saturday October 15 for the game at the Amex Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Craig Pawson
Linesmen: Scott Ledger and Adrian Holmes
Fourth Official: James Linington

Match Day referee Pawson has officiated six games in 2016/17 with a return of 19 yellow cards and one red card.

This season his highest card count was five yellows and one red in the game between West Ham and Bournemouth.

He took in 39 matches last season and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 117 yellow cards and three red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Slovan Liberec and Braga in the Europa League on September 17 with a total of seven yellows being shown. He showed seven yellows in three games after that.

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