The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Reading this weekend.

Brighton travel to Reading on Saturday October 31 for the game at the Madejski Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Neil Swarbrick
Linesmen: Andrew Fox and Mark Scholes
Fourth Official: Simon Hooper

Match Day referee Swarbrick (Lancashire) has officiated one Brighton game so far this season, the campaign opener and two one victory over Fulham. In that game he showed four yellow cards, two went to us.

He has however already taken in nine other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a total of 41 yellow cards and three red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Sunderland and West Ham on October 3 a total of seven yellows being shown and one red.

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