John Brooks the man in charge tomorrow night

Match Officials confirmed for visit from Cardiff City

10 December 2019

We return to Griffin Park tomorrow night for the first of two big Sky Bet Championship home games in 72 hours. Neil Harris brings his in-form Cardiff City to West London on Wednesday with John Brooks the man appointed to referee the game.

Referee: John Brooks

Assistant Referees: Akil Howson and Sam Lewis

Fourth Official: Ryan Atkin

Tomorrow's game will be John Brooks' fourth in charge of The Bees as the Leicestershire and Rutland FA official establishes himself in the second tier. 

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 the following February. Since then he has taken charge of two further Bees games, both of them at Griffin Park. He was the man in the middle last November when we lost 2-1 to Middlesbrough and also for April's 3-3 draw against Derby County.

So far this term, Brooks has taken charge of 15 matches, showing 45 yellow cards.
