The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Sheffield Wednesday this Friday.

Brighton host Sheffield Wednesday on Friday January 20 for the game at the Amex Stadium and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Stuart Attwell
Linesmen: Peter Kirkup and Adam Nunn
Fourth Official: James Linington

Match Day referee Attwell has officiated 16 games in 2016/17 with a return of 55 yellow cards and three red cards.

This season his highest card count was seven yellows and two reds in the Oxford v Swindon Town game. He also showed seven yellows in the game between Southampton and Middlesbrough.

He took in 44 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 118 yellow cards and four red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Plymouth and Crawley on October 3 with a total of six yellows being shown.

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