The Football Association have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Stevenage and Reading this Saturday.

Stevenage host Reading on Saturday January 6 for the FA Cup Third Round tie at the Lamex Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Ben Toner
Assistant Refs: Nigel Lugg and Mark Griffiths
Fourth Official: Alan Dale

Match Day referee Toner has officiated 20 games in 2017/18, showing 60 yellow cards and four red cards so far.

He took in 36 games in 2016/17 with a return of 121 yellow cards and five red cards.

His highest card count that season was eight yellows and one red in the game between Bury and Bristol Rovers.

He took in 28 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 101 yellow cards and six red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Mansfield and Oxford on August 22 with a total of nine yellows being shown.

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