Geoff Eltringham is one of the most seasoned pros on the refereeing circuit, having started as an Assistant Referee in 2008 before taking charge of his first game 12 months later. The County Durham referee was then appointed to the Select Group Two of referees in 2016.
His first Brentford game was a 2-0 win over Oldham Athletic in September 2011 before taking charge of our 1-1 Play-Off Semi-Final First Leg draw at Swindon Town in May 2013. After four straight defeats with him in charge, our most recent encounter with the 37-year-old saw us beat Tuesday's opponents 3-1 at St Andrew's last January.
In total this season, Eltringham has shown 89 yellow cards and one red in 24 matches.
