Officials - Oxford v Northampton (11/11/17)

The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Oxford United and Northampton Town this Saturday.

Oxford United host Northampton Town on Saturday November 11 for the game at the Kassam Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Kevin Johnson
Assistant Refs: Sam Lewis and Daniel Cook
Fourth Official: Trevor Kettle

Match Day referee Johnson has officiated 16 games in 2017/18, showing 57 yellow cards and eight red cards so far.

He took in 30 games in 2016/17 with a return of 100 yellow cards and four red cards.

His highest card count that season was seven yellows and one red in the game between Southend United and Oldham Athletic. He also showed seven yellows in the game between Port Vale and MK Dons.

He took in 30 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 88 yellow cards and two red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Port Vale and Oldham on September 29 with a total of six yellows being shown. He also showed six in the game between Portsmouth and Accrington in December and the Reading v Rotherham in February.

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