Dude, Where's Your Card - Leicester v Sheff Utd (16/2/18)

The Football Association have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Leicester City and Sheffield United this Friday.

Leicester City host Sheffield United on Friday February 16 for the FA Cup Fifth Round tie at the King Power Stadium and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Lee Mason
Assistant Refs: Harry Lennard and Dan Cook
Fourth Official: Peter Bankes

Match Day referee Mason has officiated 18 games in 2017/18, showing 48 yellow cards and three red cards.

He took in 25 games in 2016/17 with a return of 96 yellow cards and three red cards.

His highest card count that season was eight yellows in the game between Leicester City and Middlesbrough in November. Eight yellows also appeared in the Bristol City and Birmingham City clash and he also showed seven yellows and one red in the game between Manchester City and Burnley.

He took in 34 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 96 yellow cards and three red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Derby and Sheffield Wednesday in April with a total of nine yellows being shown. The Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough game in September saw eight yellows.

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