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

Barnet host Bristol Rovers on Saturday January 9 for the game at The Hive and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Michael Bull
Linesmen: Ian Rathbone and Paul Kelly
Fourth Official: Ryan T Atkin

Match Day referee Bull (Essex) has officiated one Barnet game this season – the three one win over York in October. In that game he showed three yellow cards, one to Barnet.

He has however already taken in nine other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a total of 24 yellow cards and two red cards.

He has shown three yellow cards in three successive games so far, stepped up to five yellows and then cooled with one yellow but two reds – so on his way to being very card happy at this stage.

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