Officials - Burton v QPR (13/1/18)

The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Burton Albion and Queens Park Rangers this Saturday.

Burton Albion host Queens Park Rangers on Saturday January 13 for the game at the Pirelli Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Stephen Martin
Assistant Refs: Mark Jones and Andrew Fox
Fourth Official: Darren Handley

Match Day referee Martin has officiated 25 games in 2017/18, showing 52 yellow cards and two red cards so far.

He took in 35 games in 2016/17, showing 78 yellow cards and three red cards.

His highest card count that year was seven yellows and one red in the game between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Birmingham City.

He took in 38 matches in 2015/16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 83 yellow cards and five red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Peterborough United and Bury on September 29 with a total of five yellows being shown and one red. He also showed six yellows during the game between Plymouth and Portsmouth back in August.

Martin's father and grandfather were both EFL officials and encouraged him to take up the whistle in 2002. His rapid rise saw him appointed to the EFL assistant referee list in 2008 and to the National League referee list in the same year. After four years he became an EFL referee, and has since taken charge of more than 150 games.

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