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

Barnsley travel to Colchester on Saturday December 12 for the game at the Colchester Community Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Stephen Martin
Linesmen: Paul Kelly and Paul Howard
Fourth Official: Michael Webb

Match Day referee Martin (Staffordshire) is yet to officiate a Barnsley match this season.

He has however already taken in seventeen other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and Football divisions, he has handed out a total of 47 yellow cards and three red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Peterborough United and Bury on September 29 with a total of five yellows being shown and one red. He also showed six yellows during the game between Plymouth and Portsmouth back in August.

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