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

Blackpool travel to Swindon Town on Saturday February 20 for the game at the County Ground and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Philip Gibbs
Linesmen: John Farries and Mark Mellor
Fourth Official: David Avent

Match Day referee Gibbs (West Midlands) has officiated one a Blackpool game this season.

He has however only already taken in thirteen other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a total of 35 yellow cards and two red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Shrewsbury and Barnsley on January 16 with six yellows shown, in the matches between Yeovil and Stevenage on November 14, and Wimbledon and Wycombe on November 21 he showed four yellows a piece.

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