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

Hartlepool United host Stevenage on Tuesday February 9 for the game at Victoria Park and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Ben Toner
Linesmen: Jason Whiteley and Robert Atkin
Fourth Official: Graeme Fyvie

Match Day referee Toner (Lancashire) has officiated one Hartlepool game this season – the one nil victory over Newport County back in August. In that game he showed one yellow card, to Hartlepool.

He has however already taken in nineteen other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a total of 66 yellow cards and two 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.
