The Premier League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Middlesbrough on Boxing Day.

Burnley host Middlesbrough on Monday December 26 for the game at Turf Moor and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Craig Pawson
Linesmen: I Hussin and A Halliday
Fourth Official: D Bond

Match Day referee Pawson has officiated 16 games in 2016/17 with a return of 65 yellow cards and two red cards.

This season his highest card count was nine yellows in the Europa League tie between Sassuolo and Rapid Vienna. He also showed eight yellows and one red in the game between Stoke City and Leicester City.

He took in 39 matches last season and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 117 yellow cards and three red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Slovan Liberec and Braga in the Europa League on September 17 with a total of seven yellows being shown. He showed seven yellows in three games after that.

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