The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the League One Play Off Final game between Bradford City and Millwall.

Bradford City host Millwall in the Final at Wembley Stadium to decide who makes the step into the Championship this season.

The game takes place on Saturday May 20 at Wembley and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Simon Hooper
Linesmen: Nick Hopton and Neil Davies
Fourth Official: Chris Kavanagh

Match Day referee Hooper has officiated 42 games in 2016/17 with a return of 147 yellow cards and three red cards.

His highest card count so far this season was nine yellows and one red in the game between Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest.

He took charge of 42 games last season and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 100 yellow cards and two red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Burton and Wigan in April with six yellows being shown.

An EFL referee for eight years, Hooper has refereed over 100 Championship games. He took charge of the League Two Play-Off Final between Wycombe Wanderers and Southend United in May 2015.
