Match Officials v Blackpool (a)

This Saturday the Saddlers travel to the seaside (albeit a bit colder than our last visit) as we face Blackpool.

Like the Saddlers, Blackpool have had a poor run of late and find themselves at the wrong end of the League 1 table.

The match officials have been announced and are as follows

Referee - Anthony Backhouse
Linesmen - Barry Gordon and Gary Hilton.
Fourth Official - Michael Denton

Backhouse has officiated twenty seven games this season including League 2 and FA Cup games - during those games, Backhouse has issued eighty one yellow cards, seven red cards and has awarded five penalties.

Backhouse is yet to officiate a Saddlers game.
