Dean Whitestone is one of the longest serving referees in the professional game, having taken charge of his first EFL match back in 2005. 

His first Brentford game was a 1-1 draw at home to Bristol City in October 2006 and since then he has gone on to referee a further 18 Bees outings, including our EFL Cup Fourth Round tie at Birmingham City in 2010.

After a two-year absence, the Northamptonshire official's three outings last season all came on the road. He was in charge of our defeats at Nottingham Forest and Sheffield Wednesday, before overseeing June's 3-0 win at Reading. 

This campaign he was in charge of our 4-2 defeat to Preston North End in October and then our Boxing Day trip to Cardiff City which saw Sergi Canos net a hat-trick in the 3-2 win. 

So far this season, Whitestone has shown 55 yellow cards and three reds in 28 matches.
