The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Accrington Stanley this weekend.

Carlisle United host Accrington Stanley on Saturday February 6 for the game at Brunton Park and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Geoff Eltringham
Linesmen: Simeon Lucas and Glen Hart
Fourth Official: Shaun Hudson

Match Day referee Eltringham (County Durham) is yet to officiate a Carlisle game this season.

He has however already taken in 26 other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a total of 65 yellow cards and six red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Bolton and Birmingham on October 20 with a total of seven yellow cards shown. Earlier in the season he showed four yellows and two red in the game between Brentford and Sheffield Wednesday back in September. On January 2 between Chesterfield and Shrewsbury he also showed six yellow cards and one red card.

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