The Football Association have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Carlisle United and Sheffield Wednesday this Saturday.

Carlisle United host Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday January 6 for the FA Cup Third Round tie at Brunton Park and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: David Webb
Assistant Refs: Barry Cropp and Barry Gordon
Fourth Official: David Underwood

Match Day referee Webb has officiated 25 games in 2017/18 showing 58 yellow cards and two red cards already.

He took in 45 games in 2016/17 with a return of 119 yellow cards and three red cards.

His highest card count that season was seven yellows in the game between Doncaster Rovers and Newport County.

He took in 36 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 100 yellow cards and seven red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Sheffield United and Bury on September 12 with a total of nine yellow cards shown.

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