On Wednesday night we welcome Derby County to the Brentford Community Stadium, and once again we will have fans in attendance. The man in the middle will be David Webb and you can find out more on the referee below…
Referee: David Webb
Assistant Referees: Robert Hyde and Bhupinder Gill
Fourth Official: Ian Cooper
David will take charge of us for the first time since our 3-1 win away from home at Barnsley last season- a match where Ollie Watkins netted a sensational hat-trick to give us all three points.
He was also in charge during our 3-0 win over Derby at Griffin Park last season where Bryan Mbuemo’s opener was followed up by a further two Watkins strikes.
This will be the first time this season that the referee will be in charge of one of our games, with his last match being in charge of Coventry City’s 3-1 win over Rotherham United. In 13 games as a referee this season, he has shown 41 yellow cards and two red cards- the last coming towards the end of November in a match between Preston North End and Sheffield Wednesday.
