The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Crawley Town this Tuesday.

Birmingham City host Crawley Town on Tuesday August 8 for the League Cup Round One tie at St Andrews Stadium and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Michael Salisbury
Assistant Refs: Joe Simpson and Nigel Smith
Fourth Official: Ian Dudley

Match Day referee Salisbury has officiated one game in 2017/18, showing one yellow card.

He was new to the Football League in 2016 having been on National League duty in 2015/16.

He took in 31 games in 2016/17 with a return of 107 yellow cards and nine red cards.

His highest card count that year was seven yellow cards and one red in the game between Stevenage and Portsmouth.

In the National League last season though he took in 20 games, with a return of 25 yellow cards and three red cards.

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