The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Sheffield Wednesday and Cardiff City this Friday.

Sheffield Wednesday host Cardiff City on Friday April 14 for the game at Hillsborough and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Match Day referee Coote has officiated 35 games in 2016/17 with a return of 119 yellow cards and six red cards.

His highest card count so far this season was nine yellows in the game between Brentford and Burton Albion.

He took in 30 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 111 yellow cards and five red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Ipswich Town and Cardiff City in October with eight yellows being shown. He also showed six yellows and two reds on two occasions.

Coote, a former Select Group assistant referee, Coote was appointed as an EFL referee in 2010. He has officiated at Wembley four times, and took charge of the FA Vase Final and League One Play-Off Final in 2014. As part of the PGMO exchange programme he has visited Japan, refereeing two senior matches and acting as fourth official in other games. A talented cricketer, David played cricket for Notts at various youth age groups, before committing to his refereeing career.

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