The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Leyton Orient this Saturday.

Leyton Orient travel to Grimsby Town on Saturday August 20 for the game at Blundell Park and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Graham Salisbury
Linesmen: Michael D’aguilar and Steve Copeland
Fourth Official: David Benton

Match Day referee Salisbury has officiated three games in 2016/17 with a return of seven yellow cards and one red card.

He took in 35 matches last season and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 120 yellow cards and eight red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Barnet and Luton in March where he showed eight yellow cards. Bury and Wigan Athletic in October saw seven yellows being shown and one red and he repeated that trick in April in the game between Hartlepool and Mansfield.

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