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

Gillingham travel to Fleetwood Town on Tuesday March 1 for the game at Highbury Stadium and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Jeremy Simpson
Linesmen: Michael Hanley and Ken Haycock
Fourth Official: Nick Greenhalgh

Match Day referee Simpson (Lancashire) is yet to officiate a Gillingham game this season.

He has however already taken in 25 other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a total of 90 yellow cards and five red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Bradford City and Port Vale on August 29 with a total of seven yellows being shown. He also showed seven yellows in the game between Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest on October 31 and seven again between Leeds and MK Dons on January 2. Five yellows and two reds appeared in February’s game between Accrington and Carlisle.

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