The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Colchester United this Saturday.

Hartlepool United travel to Colchester United on Saturday February 25 for the game at the Colchester Community Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Ben Toner
Linesmen: Dave Bushell and Graham Kane
Fourth Official: Gavin Muge

Match Day referee Toner has officiated 29 games in 2016/17 with a return of 93 yellow cards and three red cards.

His highest card count this season was five yellows and one red in the game between Northampton Town and Millwall.

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 our players edge closer to automatic bans.
