Officials - Middlesbrough v Ipswich (9/12/17)

The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Middlesbrough and Ipswich Town this Saturday.

Middlesbrough host Ipswich Town on Saturday December 9 for the game at the Riverside Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Robert Jones
Assistant Refs: Paul Hodskinson and James Wilson
Fourth Official: Geoff Eltringham

Match Day referee Jones has officiated 22 games in 2017/18, showing 54 yellow cards and five red cards so far.

He took in 41 games in 2016/17 with a return of 122 yellows and four red cards.

His highest card count that season was the Walsall v Yeovil Town game where he showed six yellow cards, and he also showed six yellows in the Sutton United v Cheltenham FA Cup clash.

In 2015/16 Jones was on duty in the National League, where he took in 22 matches, showing 64 yellow cards and one red card.

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