Match officials announced for Emirates FA Cup tie

The match officials for Saturday’s Emirates FA Cup clash with Bristol City have been announced.

The man in the middle will be Stephen Martin who will be taking charge of his first Fleetwood game since last season’s Boxing Day draw at Shrewsbury.

Mark Pottage and Christopher Husband will be on hand as his assistants, whilst John Busby will be the fourth official.

Martin recently refereed Nottingham Forest v Newcastle United, with the Staffordshire born official awarding two red cars to Magpies duo Jonjo Shelvey and Paul Dummett, as well as awarding two penalties against them during their defeat to Forest.

Despite this, out of his 20 games in charge, they are the only red cards he has awarded. He has further produced 50 yellows.
