Officials - Cardiff v Nottingham Forest (17/4/17)

The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Cardiff City and Nottingham Forest this Monday.

Cardiff City host Nottingham Forest on Monday April 17 for the game at the Cardiff City Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Andrew Madley
Linesmen: Robert Merchant and John Flynn
Fourth Official: Daniel Robathan

Match Day referee Madley has officiated 40 games so far this season, showing 138 yellows cards and seven red cards.

His highest card count this season was eight yellow cards in the game between Brighton and Nottingham Forest.

He took in 40 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 118 yellow cards and three red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Brentford and Reading on August 29 with a total of eight yellows being shown. He also showed eight yellows in the game between Rochdale and Oldham on October 24.

After an injury playing at Huddersfield Town academy Madley took up the whistle in 2002 at the age of 18. His early career saw him appointed as the assistant referee for the League 1 Play-Off final between Millwall and Swindon Town in 2010. He also ran the line on the Premier League before becoming an EFL referee in 2011. He has twice refereed at Wembley, taking charge of the FA Vase Final in 2015 followed shortly afterwards by refereeing the League 1 Play-Off final between Preston North End and Swindon Town.

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