Darren Bond to take charge of Saturday's London derby

Officials confirmed for visit from The Lions

15 April 2021

There's a lunchtime London derby to look forward to this weekend with Millwall the visitors to the Brentford Community Stadium on Saturday. The Lions' Play-Off hopes were all-but ended by last weekend's defeat to Swansea City but Gary Rowett's men still have a top ten spot to secure. The match officials for the game have now been confirmed.

Referee: Darren Bond

Assistant Referees: Robert Hyde and George Byrne 

Fourth Official: Alan Young

Lancashire official Darren Bond will take charge of us on Saturday, the 19th occasion he has refereed a Bees match. 

Remarkably, Saturday's game will be only the second time we've been the home side under Bond, the other game in TW8 coming in March 2014 with a 2-0 win over Bradford City. 

We are unbeaten in our last seven matches under Bond, winning the past four. The first of those was our 5-1 win over Hull City last February. This season he's been in charge of our away wins at Sheffield Wednesday, Barnsley, and Middlesbrough. 

In total, we have won seven, drawn five, and lost six of his games in charge. 

So far this term, Bond has shown 92 yellow cards and five reds in 28 outings. Three of those red cards have come in Bond's last six Sky Bet Championship matches.  

Millwall 2020/21

497 fouls - 12th in Sky Bet Championship

49 yellow cards - 19th in Sky Bet Championship

1 red card - 18th in Sky Bet Championship
