Officials - Scunthorpe v Leicester U23 (5/12/17)

The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Scunthorpe United and Leicester City's Under 23s this Tuesday in the EFL Trophy.

Scunthorpe United host Leicester City's Under 23 squad on Tuesday December 5 for the EFL Trophy tie at Glanford Park and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Trevor Kettle
Assistant Refs: Duncan Street and Simon Clayton
Fourth Official: Oliver Bickle

Match Day referee Kettle has officiated 18 games in 2017/18, showing 65 yellow cards and three red cards so far.

He took in 35 games in the 2016/17 season, with a return of 137 yellow cards and six red cards.

That season he was most card happy in the match between Leyton Orient and Crawley Town where he showed ten yellow cards.

He took in 31 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 108 yellow cards and ten red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Preston North End and Wolverhampton Wanderers on September 26 with a total of six yellows being shown plus two reds. He also showed seven yellow cards in the Wimbledon v Morecambe game in October and backed that up in November with five yellows and two red in the match between Barnet and Mansfield.

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