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

Barnsley travel to Shrewsbury Town on Saturday January 16 for the game at Greenhous Meadow and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Philip Gibbs
Linesmen: Simon Barrow and Michael Hanley
Fourth Official: Marvyn Amphlett

Match Day referee Gibbs (West Midlands) is yet to officiate a Barnsley game this season.

He has however only already taken in eight other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a total of 18 yellow cards and two red card.

He was most card happy in the matches between Yeovil and Stevenage on November 14, and Wimbledon and Wycombe on November 21 where he showed four yellows a piece.

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