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

Sunderland host Bournemouth on Saturday April 29 for the game at the Stadium of Light and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Stuart Attwell
Linesmen: S Child and S Ledger
Fourth Official: A Taylor

Match Day referee Attwell has officiated 25 games in 2016/17 with a return of 81 yellow cards and seven red cards.

This season his highest card count was five yellows and three reds in the game between Brighton and Sheffield Wednesday. He showed seven yellows and two reds in the Oxford v Swindon Town game. He also showed seven yellows in the game between Southampton and Middlesbrough.

He took in 44 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 118 yellow cards and four red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Plymouth and Crawley on October 3 with a total of six yellows being shown.

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