The appointed ref for Tuesday’s re-arranged game v Charlton is James Linnington, from Newport, IoW.
Linington’s second ever League match appointment was our L2 home defeat against Exeter in August 2008. 4 months later he returned to Dean Court and oversaw our 1-0 victory against Chester. Altogether Linington has reffed us 8 times, which included our 3-1 victory over Brentford in January 2011, our 3-1 away win at Yeovil on New Years Eve 2011 and our 3-1 defeat at Leyton Orient in March of 2013.
This season, Linington has been in the middle for 9 Championship, 9 League One and 7 League 2 games. Altogether this season,he has controlled 28 games, the last one being the thrilling 3-3 draw between Birmingham and Burnley last week. So far this season, he has issued 83 yellows and 6 reds.
Let’s hope there will be no contentious decisions we have to discuss after this game.
