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

Blackpool travel to Fleetwood Town on Saturday April 23 for the game at Highbury Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Keith Stroud
Linesmen: James Mainwaring and Thomas Bramall
Fourth Official: Anthony Tankard

Match Day referee Stroud is yet to officiate a Blackpool game this season.

He has however already taken in 42 other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a massive total of 183 yellow cards and eleven red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Derby County and Queens Park Rangers on November 3 with a total of eight yellow cards being shown, along with one red card. He also showed nine yellow cards in the game between West Bromwich Albion and Port Vale in the Capital One Cup on August 25 and seven yellows with two reds in the Leeds v Rotherham match on November 21.

In fact seven seems a favourite number the amount of times it’s come up.

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