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

Hartlepool United host Exeter City on Saturday March 4 for the game at Victoria Park and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Robert Lewis
Linesmen: David Benton and Stephen Wade
Fourth Official: Graeme Fyvie

Match Day referee Lewis has officiated 13 games so far in the 2016/17 campaign with a return of 36 yellow cards and two red cards.

In 2015/16 he took in 27 matches and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 85 yellow cards and four red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Peterborough and Crawley on August 11 with a total of seven yellows being shown. He also showed seven in the Sheffield United v Gillingham game in April.

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