The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Gillingham and Bradford City this Saturday.

Gillingham host Bradford City on Saturday August 12 for the game at Priestfield and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: John Busby
Assistant Refs: Carl Fitch-Jackson and Sam Lewis
Fourth Official: Nicholas Cooper

Match Day referee Busby has officiated two games in 2017/18, showing seven yellow cards already.

He was new to the Football League in 2016/17 having spent the season before in the National League.

He took in 36 games in 2016/17 with a return of 131 yellow cards and three red cards.

His highest card count that season was eight yellows and one red in the game between Exeter City and Luton Town in the FA Cup.

He took charge of 18 matches in 2015/16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 44 yellow cards and eight red cards.

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