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

Northampton Town host Morecambe on Saturday January 23 for the game at Sixfields and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Gavin Ward
Linesmen: David Rock and Alan Dale
Fourth Official: Sam Purkiss

Match Day referee Ward (Surrey) is yet to officiate a Northampton game this season.

He has however already taken in 21 other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a total of 74 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.
