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

Match Day referee Bankes has officiated eight games in 2017/18, showing 26 yellow cards and two red cards so far.

He took in 38 games in 2016/17 with a return of 127 yellow cards and 12 red cards.

He was most card happy that year in the game between Newcastle United and Norwich City where he showed ten yellow cards. He also showed eight yellows and two reds in the match between Rochdale and Bury.

He refereed the National League Play-Off Final at Wembley in 2014. In his two seasons on the Referees List he has overseen two Play-Off semi-finals.

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