The Premier League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against West Bromwich Albion this weekend.

Southampton host West Bromwich Albion on Saturday January 16 for the game at St Mary’s Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Martin Atkinson
Linesmen: S Burt and L Betts
Fourth Official: S Attwell

Match Day referee Atkinson (West Yorkshire) is yet to officiate a Southampton game this season.

He has however already taken in 27 other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a whopping total of 101 yellow cards.

He is yet to show a single red though.

He was most card happy in the match between Barcelona and Bayern Leverkusen back on September 29 with a total of seven yellows being shown. He’s also hit six yellows in five games as well.

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