The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Wolverhampton Wanderers this Tuesday.

Ipswich Town travel to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Tuesday August 16 for the game at the Molineux and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Peter Bankes
Linesmen: Daniel Leach and Timothy Wood
Fourth Official: Andy Woolmer

Match Day referee Bankes is yet to officiate a game in 2016/17.

He took in 38 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 153 yellow cards and five red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Birmingham City and Reading on August 8 with a total of nine yellows being shown.

Bankes began refereeing in Liverpool in 1996, aged 14. Bankes was subsequently appointed to the EFL Referees List in 2014, prior to which he spent two years as a Select Group Assistant Referee, which included his appointment to the FA Cup semi-final between Wigan Athletic and Millwall. He refereed the National League Play-Off Final at Wembley in 2014. In his two seasons on the Referees List he has overseen two Play-Off semi-finals and was the fourth official for the FA Vase Final at Wembley in May.

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