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

Southend United travel to Barnsley on Saturday March 12 for the game at Oakwell and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Brendan Malone
Linesmen: Ollie Yates and Paul Marsden
Fourth Official: Alan Clayton

Match Day referee Malone (Wiltshire) has officiated one Southend game this season.

He has however already taken in 26 other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a total of 65 yellow cards and five red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Portsmouth and Accrington Stanley on September 5 with a total of seven yellows being shown.

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