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

Sunderland host Birmingham City on Saturday December 23 for the game at the Stadium of Light and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Oliver Langford
Assistant Refs: James Wilson and Steven Meredith

Match Day referee Langford has officiated 21 games in 2017/18, showing 67 yellow cards and two red cards so far.

He took in 44 games in 2016/17 with a return of 129 yellows and five red cards.

His highest card count that year was nine yellows in the game between Swindon Town and Bristol Rovers.

He took in 41 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 99 yellow cards and four red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Burton Albion and Millwall on December 1 with a total of seven yellows being shown, along with one red.

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