The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Chesterfield and Bradford City this Tuesday in the EFL Trophy.

Bradford City travel to Chesterfield on Tuesday August 29 for the EFL Trophy tie at the Proact Stadium and the match carries a 7pm kick off.

Referee: Carl Boyeson
Assistant Refs: Alf Greenwood and Paul Hobday
Fourth Official: Steven Copeland

Match Day referee Boyeson has officiated three games in 2017/18, showing 12 yellow cards and two red cards.

He took in 36 games in 2016/17 returning 139 yellow cards and ten red cards.

His highest card count that season was the game between Wimbledon and Charlton Athletic where he showed seven yellows and one red.

He took in 31 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 102 yellow cards and five red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Fleetwood Town and Wigan on December 28 with nine yellow cards shown. Prior to that Crewe Alexandra and Eastleigh in the FA Cup on November 7 saw six yellows and one red. He also showed six yellows and one red between Burton and Rochdale in September. Seven yellows with one red were also shown in February between Bury and Barnsley.

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