Referee: Stephen Martin
Assistant Referees: Andrew Fox and Ian Cooper
Fourth Official: Andy Davies
This will be Stephen Martin’s seventh season as a referee in the EFL and his third as a member of the Select Group Two of Sky Bet Championship match officials.
Stephen’s first Brentford game was our 2-0 defeat to MK Dons at Stadium:MK in April 2013. Following three straight home victories, he took charge of the reverse of this fixture on the opening day of last season as The Blades ran out 1-0 winners at Bramall Lane. He was also in charge of our 2-2 draw at Loftus Road against QPR in November. In total, we have won three, all of those coming at home, drawn one, and lost two of his six matches in charge of us.
So far this term, the Staffordshire-based referee has shown 26 yellow cards and two red cards in ten matches, as well as awarding four penalties.
