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

Hartlepool United host Plymouth Argyle on Saturday February 18 for the game at Victoria Park and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Andy Haines
Linesmen: Wayne Grunnill and Kevin Mulraine
Fourth Official: Gareth Rhodes

Match Day referee Haines has officiated 27 games in 2016/17 with a return of 82 yellow cards and four red cards.

His highest card count this season was seven yellows in the game between Bradford City and Bristol Rovers.

He took in 27 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 86 yellow cards and five red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Oldham and Swindon in April 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.
