The Football Association have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Millwall and Leicester City this Saturday.

Millwall host Leicester City on Saturday February 18 for the FA Cup Fifth Round tie at The Den and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Craig Pawson
Linesmen: Richard West and Andrew Garratt
Fourth Official: Gavin Ward

Match Day referee Pawson has officiated 24 games in 2016/17 with a return of 98 yellow cards and two red cards.

This season his highest card count was eleven yellow cards in the game between Burnley and Middlesbrough. Prior to that his record was nine yellows in the Europa League tie between Sassuolo and Rapid Vienna and he also showed eight yellows and one red in the game between Stoke City and Leicester City.

He took in 39 matches last season and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 117 yellow cards and three red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Slovan Liberec and Braga in the Europa League on September 17 with a total of seven yellows being shown. He showed seven yellows in three games after that.

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