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

Scunthorpe United travel to Chelsea on Sunday January 10 for the FA Cup Third Round tie at Stamford Bridge and the match carries a 2pm kick off.

Referee: Craig Pawson
Linesmen: Harry Lennard and Edward Smart
Fourth Official: Lee Mason

Match Day referee Pawson (South Yorkshire) is yet to officiate a Scunthorpe game this season.

He has however already taken in 20 other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a total of 65 yellow cards and one red card.

He was most card happy in the match between Slovan Liberec and Braga in the Europa League on September 17 with a total of seven yellows being shown. He also showed seven yellows in the game between Sunderland and Aston Villa on January 2.

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