The Football Association have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Burnley and Sunderland this Tuesday.

Burnley host Sunderland on Tuesday January 17 for the FA Cup third round replay at Turf Moor and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Michael Jones
Linesmen: Peter Kirkup and Simon Bennett
Fourth Official: Peter Bankes

Match Day referee Jones has officiated 16 games in 2016/17, with a return of 56 yellow cards and three red cards.

This season his highest card count was seven yellows and one red in the Accrington v Morecambe game. He also showed eight yellows in the game between Arsenal and Bournemouth in November.

He took in 40 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 131 yellow cards and three red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Crystal Palace and Bournemouth on February 2 with a total of seven yellow cards shown. Seven were also shown between Crystal Palace and Bournemouth on February 2.

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