The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Sheffield Wednesday and Reading this Friday.

Sheffield Wednesday host Reading on Friday March 17 for the game at Hillsborough and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Match Day referee Eltringham has officiated 33 games in 2016/17 with a return of 96 yellow cards and five red cards.

His highest card count this season was the game between Aston Villa and Cardiff City where he showed eight yellow cards and one red card.

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 93 yellow cards and eight red cards.

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