Officials - Brentford v Nott'm Forest (12/8/17)

The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Brentford and Nottingham Forest this Saturday.

Brentford host Nottingham Forest on Saturday August 12 for the game at Griffin Park and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: James Linington
Assistant Refs: Mark Russell and Lee Venamore
Fourth Official: Trevor Kettle

Match Day referee Linington has officiated one game in 2017/18 showing five yellow cards.

He took in 35 games in 2016/17 with a return of 146 yellow cards and four red cards.

That year he showed eight yellow cards on three occasions.

He took in 26 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 74 yellow cards and four red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Middlesbrough on October 24 with seven yellow cards shown.

Linington is required to make the short trip over from his home on the Isle of Wight when appointed to EFL fixtures. He is a very experienced official having refereed in the EFL for 10 seasons. In 2010, he was named fourth official for the FA Trophy Final at Wembley, and returned to the same stadium two weeks later to referee the League Two Play-Off Final between Dagenham and Redbridge and Rotherham United.

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

Hoping the match official does not get hot under the collar,reads the match fairly and remains impartial at all times.This should be a cracking match,Forest narrowly escaped the drop on goal difference last season.I can't see a repeat of that this time around,they will be chomping at the bit and looking at this game to bring home something.
