Barnsley entertain Rotherham United at Oakwell on Saturday. Here at Vital Barnsley we take a look at the man who will be in charge of the proceedings for this South Yorkshire derby.

The referee is Graham Scott from Oxfordshire. Mr Scott began refereeing at the age of 15 making the National List of Assistant Referees in 2001.

In 2005 he was promoted to the list of Panel referees and in 2007 he made it to the National List of Referees.

He has only refereed one game thus far this season and in that match he produced five yellow cards. With this being a South Yorkshire derby, things could get tasty so expect a few cards to be produced by this official?

Mr Scott will be assisted by Derek Eaton of Gloucestershire and Andrew Fox from Warwickshire who will both be running the line. The fourth official is David Coote from Nottinghamshire.
