There's no let up in the Sky Bet Championship action as we welcome Norwich City to our new home tomorrow night. The Canaries have won their last three to sit fifth in the current standings, three points better off than Thomas Frank's Bees. Ahead of their first visit to our new home, the match officials have been chosen.
Referee: Jeremy Simpson
Assistant Referees: Lee Venamore and Nigel Lugg
Fourth Official: James Linington
Lancashire-based Jeremy Simpson will take charge of tomorrow's visit from Norwich City, his first Brentford game since the end of the 2018/19 season.
On that occasion he was the man in charge of our 1-1 Good Friday draw away at Millwall, a game which saw Henrik Dalsgaard sent off early on before Josh Dasilva scored his first goal for the club to equalise.
Previous to that he had officiated us 11 times, including our dramatic 3-2 win at home to Portsmouth in April 2013, a 2-1 win over The Canaries at Carrow Road in December 2017, and our 1-1 draw at Elland Road in October 2018. He was also the man in the middle as we ended an 81-year wait for a win away at Middlesbrough with a 2-1 victory there in March 2019.
In total, we have won four, drawn five, and lost three of his 12 matches in charge.
So far this season, Simpson has shown 11 yellow cards, and one red, in four competitive fixtures.
Norwich City 2020/21
83 fouls – 17th in Championship
11 yellow cards – 8th in Championship
1 red card – 3rd most in Championship
