The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Walsall this Tuesday.

Sheffield United host Walsall on Tuesday October 4 for the Football League Trophy/Checkatrade Trophy tie at Bramall Lane and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Mark Heywood
Linesmen: Peter Gooch and Nigel Smith
Fourth Official: Mick Denton

Match Day referee Heywood has officiated 11 game in 2016/17 with a return of 51 yellow cards and one red card.

His highest card count this season was seven yellows in the game between Notts County and Plymouth Argyle.

He took in 27 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 91 yellow cards and seven red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Barnet on August 25 with a total of six yellows shown. Birmingham and Nottingham Forest on September 15 also saw six.

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