The Football Association have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Sheffield United and Preston North End this Saturday.

Sheffield United host Preston North End on Saturday January 27 for the FA Cup fourth Round tie at Bramall Lane and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Graham Scott
Assistant Refs: Richard West and Anthony Da Costa
Fourth Official: David Webb

Match Day referee Scott has officiated 19 games in 2017/18, showing 45 yellow cards and three red cards so far.

He took in 27 games in 2016/17, with a return of 93 yellow cards and five red cards.

His highest card count that season was in the Luton Town and Wycombe Wanderers game where he showed six yellow cards. He also showed six in the game between Bristol City and Burton Albion.

He took in 20 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 79 yellow cards and two red cards.

He was most card happy in the game between Leeds United and Huddersfield Town in March with eight yellow cards being shown.

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