Ref watch: Bristol Rovers (H)

2 April 2018

Ross Joyce will take charge of Fleetwood's home fixture against Bristol Rovers this Easter Weekend.

The Englishman has refereed 36 games so far this season, with Friday being his 15th League One game.

Joyce has brandished 134 yellow cards and one red across five competitions this campaign.

The last time he officiated a Fleetwood match was at Highbury Stadium in last month's 2-1 defeat to promotion hopefuls Shrewsbury Town. Paddy Madden cancelled out Shaun Whalley's first half goal, with Nathan Thomas netting a late winner in front of the travelling Salop fans.

It has been a while since Joyce has officiated one of Bristol Rovers’ games, as the last one was their 2-1 loss to Blackburn Rovers last November. The game at Ewood Park saw the referee give out three yellow cards, two to The Gas and one to Rovers.

Matthew Jones and Alix Pashley will be Joyce's assistants for the game, with Matthew Parry ascting as fourth official.
