The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday this Saturday.

Aston Villa host Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday March 11 for the game at Villa Park and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Lee Probert
Linesmen: Andy Garratt and Derek Eaton
Fourth Official: John Busby

Match Day referee Probert is back this year having taken charge of 19 games in the 2014/15 season. In those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 63 yellow cards and five red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa with a total of six yellows being shown, along with one red. He showed seven yellows in the Accrington Stanley v Wycombe Wanderers game in December.

He has officiated 24 games in 2016/17 with a return of 46 yellow cards and three red cards.

He was most card happy this campaign in the game between Fulham and Leeds United where he showed six yellows and one red.

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