Roger East from Wiltshire is the man in the middle as Rangers host playoff hopefuls Birmingham City.
Competition: Football League Championship
Date: Saturday 27th February 2016
Assistant: David Bryan (Lincolnshire)
Assistant: Edward Smart (West Midlands)
Fourth Official: Paul Tierney (Lancashire)
Mr East was perhaps better known for his exploits as an assistant referee as he emerged as one of the country’s select crop of linesmen. This was before East joined the National List of Referees in 2006 before making the leap to the Select List in 2013 – where he has remained since.
This weekend he will be assisted by David Bryan (Lincolnshire) and Edward Smart (West Midlands),
with Paul Tierney (Lancashire) on fourth official duties.
Thus far this campaign he has dished out 76 yellows in his 27 fixtures, giving him a card average of 2.81 cards per game – he has not handed out a red card since the opening day of the season.
