John Brooks to take charge of Saturday's game against Derby County

Match Officials confirmed for visit from Frank Lampard's Rams

3 April 2019

Referee: John Brooks

Assistant Referees: Philip Dermott and Darren Blunden

Fourth Official: Alan Young

Saturday's game will be John Brooks' third in charge of The Bees as the Leicestershire and Rutland FA official continues to work his way through the football pyramid. 

Brooks is on the select group of assistant referees for the Premier League and, in 2015, joined the FIFA International referees list as an assistant. He ran the line at Wembley for the 2014 Sky Bet Championship Play-Off final and took charge of an EFL game for the first time in August 2016.

His maiden second-tier game was in December 2017 with his second Championship assignment seeing us take three points in the north-east against Sunderland last February. His only other Brentford game was November's 2-1 home defeat against Middlesbrough.  

So far this term, Brooks has taken charge of 33 matches, showing 121 yellow card and five reds. 

Derby County 2018/19

461 fouls - 15th in Sky Bet Championship

77 yellow cards - 3rd in Sky Bet Championship

1 red card - 17th in Sky Bet Championship
