Matthew Donohue to take charge at Ewood Park on Wednesday

Match Officials confirmed for visit to Blackburn Rovers

26 November 2019

Referee: Matthew Donohue

Assistant Referees: Philip Dermott and Paul Hodskinson

Fourth Official: Peter Wright

Matthew Donohue has enjoyed a quick rise through the National Group, spending just 12 months as an EFL referee before being added to the Select Group Two of Sky Bet Championship officials during the summer. 

As such this will be Donohue's first Brentford assignment and his 44th overall in the top four divisions. The Greater Manchester official hit the headlines last month after initially, mistakenly, sending off West Bromwich Albion's Grady Diangana for a foul before correcting his decision to dismiss Nathan Ferguson during The Baggies game with Charlton Athletic.  

That red was one of three that Donohue has shown in his last four assignments, adding to the 59 yellow cards which he has shown in 15 matches this term. 

Blackburn Rovers 2019/20

198 fouls – 16th in Sky Bet Championship

27 yellow cards – 16th in Sky Bet Championship

0 red cards – 19th in Sky Bet Championship
