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

Leyton Orient travel to Newport County on Saturday March 4 for the game at Rodney Parade and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Gavin Ward
Linesmen: John Law and Richard Hulme
Fourth Official: Craig Taylor

Match Day referee Ward has officiated 31 games in 2016/17 with a return of 114 yellow cards and five red cards.

His highest card count this year was eight yellows in the game between Cheltenham Town and Blackpool. He also showed seven yellows and one red in the game between Charlton Athletic and Oxford United.

He took in 35 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 113 yellow cards and two red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Brighton and Birmingham on November 28 with a total of eight yellows being shown. He also showed seven yellows in the Bristol City v Leeds encounter on August 19, and six yellows and one red on December 20 in the game between Leeds and Preston.

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