The Football Association have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Lincoln City this Saturday.

Ipswich Town host Lincoln City on Saturday January 7 for the FA Cup Third Round tie at Portman Road and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Lee Probert
Linesmen: Neil Davies and Marc Wilson
Fourth Official: Nicholas Kinseley

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 19 games in 2016/17 with a return of 33 yellow cards and one red card.

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