The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Portsmouth and Doncaster Rovers this Saturday.

Portsmouth host Doncaster Rovers on Saturday February 3 for the game at Fratton Park and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Graham Salisbury
Assistant Refs: Graham Kane and George Warren
Fourth Official: Gary Parsons

Match Day referee Salisbury has officiated 27 games in 2017/18 showing a whopping 110 yellow cards and seven red cards already.

He took in 36 games in 2016/17 with a return of 116 yellow cards and five red cards.

His highest card count that season was six yellows in the game between Newport County and Barnet.

He took in 35 matches in 2015/16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 120 yellow cards and eight red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Barnet and Luton in March where he showed eight yellow cards. Bury and Wigan Athletic in October saw seven yellows being shown and one red and he repeated that trick in April in the game between Hartlepool and Mansfield.

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