The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Oldham Athletic this Tuesday.

Blackpool travel to Oldham Athletic on Tuesday March 15 for the game at Boundary Park and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Jeremy Simpson
Linesmen: James Bell and Danny Gratton
Fourth Official: David Richardson

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

He has however already taken in 28 other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a total of 98 yellow cards and five red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Bradford City and Port Vale on August 29 with a total of seven yellows being shown. He also showed seven yellows in the game between Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest on October 31 and seven again between Leeds and MK Dons on January 2. Five yellows and two reds appeared in February’s game between Accrington and Carlisle.

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