Roger East from Wiltshire is the man in the middle as Rangers look to maintain their unbeaten start at home to Doncaster Rovers.

Mr East is better known for his exploits as an assistant referee as he emerged as one of the country's select crop of linesmen. He spent seven years on the national list before joining the select list in 2007 and joined the Fifa list for two years before trying his hand at refereeing.

During his time as an assistant he cites the 2003 playoff final between QPR and Cardiff City as the best game he has been involved in.

He also assisted Jeff Winter in the 2004 FA Cup Final as Manchester United defeated Millwall while also assisting Martin Atkinson in the 2006 Community Shield as Liverpool defeated Chelsea.

The first Football League match that Mr East officiated was Macclesfield`s 3-3 draw against the MK Dons in August 2007. He oversaw six goals and booked seven players.

Thus far this campaign he has dished out 24 yellows in his five fixtures, giving him a card average of 4.8 cards per game.

This weekend he will be assisted by Mr Darren Bond (Lancashire) and Mr Chris Powell (Dorset) - the fourth official is Mr Gavin Muge (Bedfordshire).

Refereeing Rangers

Mr East took charge of his first Rangers game in a stalemate with playoff hopefuls Cardiff City. In truth it was one of the R's best away displays of the campaign with Wayne Routledge tearing his former team-mates to shreds.

The killer instinct eluded Rangers at the vital moment, something that was all too common under Iain Dowie, Gareth Ainsworth and Paulo Sousa.

He also took charge of Rangers first Championship away test in 2009-10 as QPR faced Plymouth Argyle. The R's had the lead courtesy of Heidar Helguson but a last gasp Kaspars Gorkss own goal saw the spoils shared at Home Park.
