Officials - Leeds v Preston (12/8/17)

The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Leeds United and Preston North End this Saturday.

Leeds United host Preston North End on Saturday August 12 for the game at Elland Road and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Scott Duncan
Assistant Refs: Christopher Akers and Akil Howson
Fourth Official: Martin Coy

Match Day referee Duncan has officiated two games in 2017/18 showing four yellow cards and one red card.

He took in 38 games in 2016/17 with a return of 113 yellow cards and ten red cards.

His highest card count that year was eight yellows and one red in the game between Huddersfield Town and Burton Albion.

He took charge of 37 matches in 2015/16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 97 yellow cards and four red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Mansfield Town and Accrington Stanley with seven yellows being shown. Prior to that Blackburn Rovers and Cardiff City in August saw five yellows being shown and that matched his first game of the season between Coventry and Wigan where the same number of yellows appeared.

Duncan started his career as an EFL referee in 2012/13, taking charge of Port Vale versus Barnet. Since then he has refereed more than 100 matches, including both League One and League Two Play-Off semi-finals and a Southern Area Final of the EFL Trophy.

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

Don't mind who the ref is at a game as long as they are impartial,read the game correctly and are not card happy.We all have seen bad ref's in our time,good ones too.It's time to implement a similar system to what they use now in tennis,have the goal line monitored,every season we see goals disallowed,the ref and his assistants getting it wrong whilst the fans can clearly see the ball has crossed over the line.It wouldn't cost much to bring in such a system,I am fairly sure we would all welcome this.
