Officials - Derby v Preston (7/3/17)

The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Derby County and Preston North End this Tuesday.

Derby County host Preston North End on Tuesday March 7 for the game at the iPro Stadium and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: James Linington
Linesmen: James Wilson and Steven Meredith
Fourth Official: John Brooks

Match Day referee Linington has officiated 25 games in 2016/17 with a return of 112 yellow cards and three red cards.

This season he has shown eight yellow cards on three occasions.

He took in 26 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 74 yellow cards and four red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Middlesbrough on October 24 with seven yellow cards shown.

Linington is required to make the short trip over from his home on the Isle of Wight when appointed to EFL fixtures. He is a very experienced official having refereed in the EFL for nine seasons. In 2010, he was named fourth official for the FA Trophy Final at Wembley, and returned to the same stadium two weeks later to referee the League Two Play-Off Final between Dagenham and Redbridge and Rotherham United.

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