First Team

Darren Bond to take charge at Portman Road tomorrow night

Match Officials confirmed for trip to East Anglia

17 September 2018

We make the trip down the A12 to Portman Road tomorrow night knowing that a first away win of the campaign would cement our spot in the Sky Bet Championship's automatic promotion places. Standing in our way is an Ipswich Town team who are yet to hit their stride under new boss Paul Hurst. Below you will find out everything you need to know about Tuesday night's match officials.

Referee: Darren Bond

Assistant RefereesIan Cooper and Adam Crysell

Fourth Official: Lee Collins

This is Darren Bond's seventh season on the EFL list, and sixth in charge of Sky Bet Championship games, after joining the National List in 2012.

He has previously taken charge of 11 Brentford games with The Bees winning three and drawing two of those matches. Bond's two assignments last season ended in contrasting fortunes; he was the man in the middle for our 1-0 victory at Reading in January before officiating the 2-0 defeat at Barnsley in April which ended our Play-Off hopes. 

So far this term, he has shown 23 yellow and two red cards, in seven league and cup matches. 

Ipswich Town 2018/19

91 fouls - 7th in Sky Bet Championship

9 yellow cards - 17th in Sky Bet Championship

2 red card - 1st in Sky Bet Championship
