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

Colchester United host Wigan Athletic on Saturday March 12 for the game at the Colchester Community Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Kevin Johnson
Linesmen: Mark Mellor and Michael Webb
Fourth Official: Richard Kendall

Match Day referee Johnson is yet to officiate a Colchester game this season.

He has however already taken in 25 other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a total of 74 yellow cards and zero red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Port Vale and Oldham on September 29 with a total of six yellows being shown. He also showed six in the game between Portsmouth and Accrington in December and the Reading v Rotherham in February.

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