Officials - Leeds v Birmingham (12/9/17)

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

Birmingham City travel to Leeds United on Tuesday September 12 for the game at Elland Road and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Peter Bankes
Assistant Refs: Paul Hodskinson and David Avent
Fourth Official: Darren Bond

Match Day referee Bankes has officiated nine games in 2017/18, showing 29 yellow cards and two red cards so far.

He took in 38 games in 2016/17 with a return of 127 yellow cards and 12 red cards.

He was most card happy that year in the game between Newcastle United and Norwich City where he showed ten yellow cards. He also showed eight yellows and two reds in the match between Rochdale and Bury.

He took in 38 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 153 yellow cards and five red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Birmingham City and Reading on August 8 with a total of nine yellows being shown.

Bankes began refereeing in Liverpool in 1996, aged 14. Bankes was subsequently appointed to the EFL Referees List in 2014, prior to which he spent two years as a Select Group Assistant Referee, which included his appointment to the FA Cup semi-final between Wigan Athletic and Millwall. He refereed the National League Play-Off Final at Wembley in 2014. In his two seasons on the Referees List he has overseen two Play-Off semi-finals.

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