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

Carlisle United host Portsmouth on Saturday November 21 for the game at Brunton Park and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Scott Duncan
Linesmen: Paul Marsden and Michael Denton
Fourth Official: Martin Coy

Match Day referee Duncan (Northumberland) is yet to officiate a Carlisle game this season.

He has however already taken in thirteen other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and Football divisions, he has handed out a total of 34 yellow cards and zero red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Blackburn Rovers and Cardiff City on August 18 with a total of five yellows being shown. That matched his first game of the season between Coventry and Wigan where the same number of yellows appeared.

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