Officials - Aston Villa v Bristol City (1/1/18)

The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Aston Villa and Bristol City this Monday.

Aston Villa host Bristol City on Monday January 1 for the game at Villa Park and the match carries a 5.30pm kick off.

Referee: Andy Davies
Assistant Refs: Timothy Wood and Paul Hodskinson
Fourth Official: Tony Harrington

Match Day referee Davies has officiated 13 games so far this season, showing 50 yellow cards and one red card so far.

He took in 38 games in 2016/17 with a return of 136 yellow cards and four red cards.

His highest card count that year was eight yellows in the game between Cardiff City and Aston Villa. He also showed seven yellows and one red in the match between Ipswich Town and Brighton.

He took charge of 36 matches in 2015/16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 127 yellow cards and five red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Charlton and Leeds on December 12 with a total of eight yellow cards being shown. Wimbledon and Notts County on September saw seven yellows and he also showed seven in the November tie between MK Dons and Charlton.

A former player with a number of clubs at youth level, Davies capitalised on this experience to make a rapid rise through the refereeing ranks. He was appointed to the EFL Referees List in 2012/13 and since then has refereed over 100 EFL matches.

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