The Premier League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Sunderland and Burnley this Saturday.

Sunderland host Burnley on Saturday March 18 for the game at the Stadium of Light and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Robert Madley
Linesmen: P Kirkup and M Perry
Fourth Official: M Jones

Match Day referee Madley has officiated 26 games in 2016/17 with a return of 107 yellow cards and three red cards.

This season his highest card count was eight yellows between Tottenham and Liverpool in August. He also showed seven yellows and one red in the match between Southend United and Scunthorpe United.

He took in 35 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 96 yellow cards and six red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Chelsea and West Ham in March with eight yellows being shown, prior to that Chelsea and Southampton in October saw seven yellows.

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