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

Scunthorpe United travel to Blackpool on Saturday January 16 for the game at Bloomfield Road and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Darren Deadman
Linesmen: Martin Coy and Peter Gooch
Fourth Official: Robert Jones

Match Day referee Deadman (Cambridgeshire) is yet to officiate a Scunthorpe game this season.

He has however already taken in nineteen other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a total of 58 yellow cards and one red card.

He was most card happy in the match between Wycombe Wanderers and Hartlepool United on September 5 with a total of four yellows being shown and one red. The game between Barnsley and Gillingham on September 26, Colchester v Port Vale on October 20 and Wigan v Shrewsbury on November 21 also saw five yellow cards shown.

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