Officials - Middlesbrough v Sheffield United (12/8/17)

The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Middlesbrough and Sheffield United this Saturday.

Middlesbrough host Sheffield United on Saturday August 12 for the game at the Riverside Stadium and the match carries a 5.30pm kick off.

Referee: Peter Bankes
Assistant Refs: Paul Hodskinson and Mark Dwyer
Fourth Official: Jeremy Simpson

Match Day referee Bankes has officiated two games in 2017/18 showing five yellow cards and one red card so far.

He took in 38 games in 2016/17 with a return of 127 yellow cards and 12 red cards.

He was most card happy that year in the game between Newcastle United and Norwich City where he showed ten yellow cards. He also showed eight yellows and two reds in the match between Rochdale and Bury.

He took in 38 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 153 yellow cards and five red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Birmingham City and Reading on August 8 with a total of nine yellows being shown.

Bankes began refereeing in Liverpool in 1996, aged 14. Bankes was subsequently appointed to the EFL Referees List in 2014, prior to which he spent two years as a Select Group Assistant Referee, which included his appointment to the FA Cup semi-final between Wigan Athletic and Millwall. He refereed the National League Play-Off Final at Wembley in 2014. In his two seasons on the Referees List he has overseen two Play-Off semi-finals.

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

Don't mind who the ref is at a game as long as they are impartial,read the game correctly and are not card happy.We all have seen bad ref's in our time,good ones too.It's time to implement a similar system to what they use now in tennis,have the goal line monitored,every season we see goals disallowed,the ref and his assistants getting it wrong whilst the fans can clearly see the ball has crossed over the line.It wouldn't cost much to bring in such a system,I am fairly sure we would all welcome this.
