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

Barnsley travel to Fleetwood Town on Thursday February 4 for the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Area Final second leg tie at Highbury Stadium and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Eddie Ilderton
Linesmen: Matthew Dicicco and Gary Hilton
Fourth Official: Mark Brown

Match Day referee Ilderton (Tyne and Wear) has officiated one Barnsley game this season – the scoreless draw with Bradford in August. In that game he showed three yellow cards, two to Barnsley.

He has however already taken in eighteen other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a total of 39 yellow cards and two red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Notts County and York City on September 26 with a total of six yellows being shown.

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