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

Rochdale host Sheffield United on Saturday February 27 for the game at Spotland Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Mark Heywood
Linesmen: Simon Barrow and Declan Ford
Fourth Official: Marc Edwards

Match Day referee Heywood (West Yorkshire) is yet to officiate a Rochdale game this season.

He has however already taken in seventeen other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and Football divisions, he has handed out a total of 53 yellow cards and three red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Barnet on August 25 with a total of six yellows shows. Birmingham and Nottingham Forest on September 15 also saw six.

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