Match Zone

Turf Time – Burnley v Brighton


The Premier League have revealed the team of Match Day Officials that will oversee the upcoming top-flight tie between Burnley and Brighton at Turf Moor.

Sean Dyche’s boys host the Seagulls this coming Saturday (April 28) for the game against Chris Hughton’s side.

Match week 36 sees Brighton relatively safe as they look to consolidate their position in the Premier League. With only a few games remaining in the campaign they are seven points clear of the drop zone and although their form over the last five games is hardly inspiring, the safe money says they will limp across the line, if not pick up another victory or two.

Hopefully, a turn in form won’t happen this weekend though as Burnley are still gunning for a Europa League adventure in 2018/19. The season continues to be one in which few anticipated this and although Arsenal have increased their gap on us, with Southampton out of the FA Cup we are well placed for qualifier stage entry from seventh spot.

Another three points would go a long way in securing that but given the gap we hold on Everton and Leicester City remaining unbeaten should continue to do the trick.

The aim will be to end the campaign strongly though to raise spirits even further.

The match is set for a 3pm kickoff and these are the folks in charge.

Referee: Roger East
Assistant Refs: Mark Scholes and Derek Eaton
Fourth Official: Mike Jones
