The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Fulham this Saturday.

Norwich City travel to Fulham on Saturday August 5 for the game at Craven Cottage and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: James Linington
Assistant Refs: Nigel Lugg and Ian Cooper
Fourth Official: John Brooks

Match Day referee Linington took in 35 games in 2016/17 with a return of 146 yellow cards and four red cards.

That year he showed 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 10 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 our players edge closer to automatic bans.
