LUFC Leeds v Crystal Palace Man in the middle

Scott Mathieson will be the man in charge of the action when Leeds United welcome Crystal Palace to Elland Road on Saturday.

The Cheshire official will be taking charge of his sixth game this season on Saturday. In his previous 5 games, he has shown 11 yellow cards (2.2 per game) and he is yet to show a red card this season.

Last season he took charge of 35 games, showing 86 yellow cards (2.45 per game) and 2 red cards.

His last game in charge of Leeds was at Millwall last season when they were beaten 3-2.

He was also in charge of the 2-0 home win over Queens Park Rangers at Elland Road in December.

The last time he was in charge of a Crystal Palace game was during the 2008/09 season when they drew 0-0 at Queens Park Rangers.

Referee: Scott Mathieson (Cheshire)
Assistants: David McCallum & Lee Metcalfe

This is one referee who has benefitted from years of refereeing in the Football League. Unlike the joker Anthony Taylor who has been fast tracked in just four years into the Premier League, Mathieson as spent over 10 years officiating in the Football League. I will openly admit when he first came through in the late 90's I couldn't stand him. But he is now very consistent and I think it shows in the amount of yellow and red cards that he dishes out, which is a very low average. I also must admit he went up in my estimation last season when it showed you him on the Football League show going down the tunnel after our game with QPR giving Neil Warnock a good blast after Warnock was whinging about a few decisions. Lets hope he now doesn't let me down on Saturday!!

He's gone unnoticed in his last few games when in charge of Leeds which usually tells you he's had a good game.
