Officials - Hull v Birmingham (30/9/17)

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

Hull City host Birmingham City on Saturday September 30 for the game at the KCOM Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Scott Duncan
Assistant Refs: Philip Dermott and Mark Dwyer
Fourth Official: Andy Haines

Match Day referee Duncan has officiated eleven games in 2017/18, showing 26 yellow cards and two red cards.

He took in 38 games in 2016/17 with a return of 113 yellow cards and ten red cards.

His highest card count that year was eight yellows and one red in the game between Huddersfield Town and Burton Albion.

He took charge of 37 matches in 2015/16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 97 yellow cards and four red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Mansfield Town and Accrington Stanley with seven yellows being shown. Prior to that Blackburn Rovers and Cardiff City in August saw five yellows being shown and that matched his first game of the season between Coventry and Wigan where the same number of yellows appeared.

Duncan started his career as an EFL referee in 2012/13, taking charge of Port Vale versus Barnet. Since then he has refereed more than 100 matches, including both League One and League Two Play-Off semi-finals and a Southern Area Final of the EFL Trophy.

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