Michael Salisbury to take charge at Luton Town on Saturday

The officials have been confirmed for our trip to Kenilworth Road

29 October 2020

There'll be a new face in charge of us when we head to Luton Town on Saturday as up and coming referee Michael Salisbury takes his maiden Bees game. Get to know more about this weekend's man in the middle below.

Referee: Michael Salisbury

Assistant Referees: Mark Pottage and Adrian Waters

Fourth Official: Jeremy Simpson

Saturday's game will be Salisbury's first in charge of The Bees and fourth assignment all told in the second tier. 

The Lancashire Official began refereeing in the Football League during the 2016/17 season, having been appointed to the Vanarama National League a mere 12 months earlier.

Salisbury, who is the son of fellow EFL referee, Graham Salisbury, took charge of his first Sky Bet Championship fixture at the back end of last season, a 1-1 draw between Reading and Stoke City. 

His most high profile assignment so far came in June as he refereed the Sky Bet League Two Play-Off Final which saw Charlie Goode and Northampton Town run out 4-0 winners against Exeter City at Wembley. 

The red card shown to Dean Moxey that evening was the 10th Salisbury showed in 29 matches last season, and 32nd he has shown in 159 professional matches officiated. 

So far this campaign, there have been 15 yellow cards, and one red, handed out in his five matches. 

Luton Town 2020/21

103 fouls – 12th in Championship

15 yellow cards – Most in Championship

0 red card – Least in Championship
