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

Charlton travel to Birmingham on Saturday November 21 for the game at St Andrews and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Darren Drysdale
Linesmen: Darren Strain and Andrew Newbold
Fourth Official: Ben Toner

Match Day referee Drysdale (Lincolnshire) has officiated a Charlton game this season – the scoreless draw with Nottingham Forest back in August. In that game he showed four yellow cards, one to Charlton.

He has however already taken in thirteen other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a total of 35 yellow cards and one red card.

He was most card happy in the match between Blackburn Rovers and Derby County on October 21 with a total of six yellows being shown. He followed that in his next game between Walsall and Gillingham with another six.

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