Officials - Birmingham v Newcastle (18/3/17)

The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Birmingham City and Newcastle United this Saturday.

Birmingham City host Newcastle United on Saturday March 18 for the game at St Andrew's Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Simon Hooper
Linesmen: Akil Howson and Christopher Akers
Fourth Official: David Coote

Match Day referee Hooper has officiated 35 games in 2016/17 with a return of 129 yellow cards and three red cards.

Highest card count so far this season was nine yellows and one red in the game between Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest.

He took charge of 42 games last season and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 100 yellow cards and two red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Burton and Wigan in April with six yellows being shown.

An EFL referee for eight years, Hooper has refereed over 100 Championship games. He took charge of the League Two Play-Off Final between Wycombe Wanderers and Southend United in May 2015.

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