The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Cambridge United and Southampton Under 23s this Tuesday in the EFL Trophy.

Southampton travel to Cambridge on Tuesday October 3 for the EFL Trophy tie at the Abbey Stadium and the match carries a 7pm kick off.

Referee: Charles Breakspear
Assistant Refs: Michael Webb and Paul Hobday
Fourth Official: Robert Whitton

Match Day referee Breakspear has officiated 12 games in 2017/18, showing 48 yellow cards and four red cards.

He took in 40 games in 2016/17 with a return of 165 yellow cards and ten red cards.

His highest card count this season was in the game between Swindon Town and Bury where he showed ten yellow cards.

He took in 37 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 142 yellow cards and four red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Colchester United and Gillingham on September 19 with a total of seven yellows being shown. He’s also shown six yellow cards on a number of occasions.

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