The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Mansfield Town on Monday.

Blackpool host Mansfield Town on Monday January 2 for the game at Bloomfield Road and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Robert Jones
Linesmen: Graeme Fyvie and Michael Denton
Fourth Official: Anthony Backhouse

Match Day referee Jones has officiated 24 games in 2016/17 with a return of 80 yellows and two red cards.

His highest card count this season so far was the Walsall v Yeovil Town game where he showed six yellow cards, and he also showed six yellows in the Sutton United v Cheltenham FA Cup clash.

In 2015/16 Jones was on duty in the National League, where he took in 22 matches, showing 64 yellow cards and one red card.

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