The Match Day officials for Wednesday’s away trip to Walsall have been announced by the EFL.

Wigan Athletic travel to Walsall on the evening of Wednesday March 21 for the game at the Bescott Stadium and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Wednesday’s match sees John Brooks take charge of affairs, and he will be ably or otherwise assisted by Richard Bartlett and Michael Denton on the lines. Christopher Sarginson wears the fourth official cap for the 90 minutes.

Match Day referee Brooks has officiated 41 games in 2017/18 showing 128 yellow cards and six red cards so far.

In 2016/17 he was new to the Football League, having taken charge of 21 games at National League level the season before.

Last season he took in 36 games, showing 150 yellow cards and ten red cards.

He showed nine straight yellow cards in the Bristol Rovers v Gillingham clash, and showed eight yellows and one red on two occasions throughout the season.

Brooks is yet to officiate a Wigan Athletic game this season so it should be a new experience for all.
