We return after the international break with a trip down the M40 to Wycombe Wanderers this weekend. It'll be our first league visit to Adams Park in nine seasons and the match officials for the game have now been confirmed.
Referee: Lee Mason
Assistant Referee: Mark Scholes and Daniel Leach
Fourth Official: Craig Hicks
A Premier League referee since the mid-2000s, this will be the first time that Lee Mason has taken charge of a Brentford game since May 2015, and only the fourth time he has ever refereed us.
Beginning his career in his home town of Bolton in 1988, Mason worked his way through the non-league, reaching the Football League during the 2002/03 season.
Two years later he took charge of his first Brentford game, a 3-0 defeat to Peterborough United in August 2004. His second of our games that campaign was a 1-0 FA Cup Fourth Round replay win at Hartlepool United. That afternoon he sent off Jack Ross and awarded us an early penalty in the north east.
Appointed to the Premier League in 2006, Mason's only Bees assignment of the last 15 years was the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Semi-Final second leg against Middlesbrough in May 2015, which ended in a 3-0 defeat.
So far this season, the Lancashire officials has shown 14 yellow cards in six matches.
Wycombe Wanderers 2020/21
144 fouls - 7th in the Sky Bet Championship
11 yellow cards - 22nd in Sky Bet Championship
1 red card - 4th in Sky Bet Championship
This weekend we’ll be donating all the iFollow income from the Wycombe game to help pay for Jamie Powell’s vital treatment at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston
