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

Portsmouth travel to Cambridge United on Saturday April 22 for the game at the Abbey Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Gavin Ward
Linesmen: Christopher Wade and Kevin Morris
Fourth Official: Adrian Waters

Match Day referee Ward has officiated 39 games in 2016/17 with a return of 140 yellow cards and six red cards.

His highest card count this year was ten yellows in the game between Barnet and Wycombe Wanderers. He also showed eight yellows in the game between Cheltenham Town and Blackpool.

He took in 35 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 113 yellow cards and two red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Brighton and Birmingham on November 28 with a total of eight yellows being shown. He also showed seven yellows in the Bristol City v Leeds encounter on August 19, and six yellows and one red on December 20 in the game between Leeds and Preston.

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