The Premier League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Bournemouth and Brighton this Friday.

Bournemouth host Brighton on Friday September 15 for the game at Dean Court and the match carries an 8pm kick off.

Referee: Craig Pawson
Assistant Refs: Richard West and Constantine Hatzidakis
Fourth Official: Chris Kavanagh

Match Day referee Pawson has officiated three games in 2017/18, showing 20 yellow cards and two red cards.

He took in 34 games in 2016/17 with a return of 139 yellow cards and five red cards.

That season his highest card count was eleven yellow cards in the game between Burnley and Middlesbrough. Prior to that his record was nine yellows in the Europa League tie between Sassuolo and Rapid Vienna and he also showed eight yellows and one red in the game between Stoke City and Leicester City.

He took in 39 matches in 2015/17 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 the players edge closer to automatic bans.
