Referee Watch | Northampton Town

Staffordshire official Ollie Yates will be the man with the whistle for this Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two clash with Northampton Town.

Yates is one of the newer referees in the EFL, having been promoted two seasons ago from the National League.

This will be his first Town game of the 2018/19 Season, with his last one being last season’s 4-0 hammering at Coventry City.

He did officiate the Mariners in the 3-1 victory over Woking back in April 2016, where a Padraig Amond hat-trick made the difference as Town eventually went on to win promotion a month later.

In 32 games this season he has shown 120 Yellow Cards and 5 Red Cards.

Mr Yates will be assisted by Matthew Smith and Graeme Fyvie, and the Fourth Official will be Mark Dwyer.
