Star Of Pink Panther Refereeing Our Game With Shrewsbury?

Star Of Pink Panther Refereeing Our Game With Shrewsbury?

This Saturday we make the short journey to Shrewsbury as two sides heading in the opposite direction meet. The Saddlers for many years have had the bragging rights over Our near neighbours however Shrewsbury now have a manager who is regarded as one of the best outside the Premiership whilst we have a manager that probably would struggle to get a managers job higher than League 2 if he wasn't at Walsall.

However the match officials have been announced and are as follows

Darren Blunden and Mark Russell
Fourth Official : Ollie Yates

Martin has officiated thirty two league games this season, dishing out seventy four yellow cards, two red cards and awarding three penalties.

Martin has officiated one Saddlers game already this season, our 3-1 defeat against Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.

Martin was criticised by the press and fans alike for sending off two Newcastle United players last season, both Jonjo Shelvey and Paul Drummonds red cards were rescinded.

Preston boss Alex Neil was furious with Martin earlier this season for calling one of his players back onto the pitch to show him a red card.
