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

Portsmouth host Northampton Town on Saturday December 30 for the game at Fratton Park and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Lee Swabey
Assistant Refs: Simon Knapp and Justin Amey
Fourth Official: Graham Kane

Match Day referee Swabey has officiated six games in the season of 2017/18, showing 20 yellow cards and one red card.

In 2016/17 he took in 14 games, with a return of 59 yellow cards and three red cards.

His highest card count that year was nine yellows in the game between Mansfield Town and Portsmouth.

He took in 31 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 98 yellow cards and eleven red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Stevenage and Mansfield on September 29 with a total of eight yellows being shown.

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