Tony Harrington will take charge at Reading tomorrow

Match Officials confirmed for trip to Madejski Stadium

9 February 2021

After making our longest away trip of the season to Middlesbrough on Saturday, we face one of our shortest tomorrow night in the shape of a visit to Reading. The Royals head into the game in fourth and are unbeaten in their last seven Sky Bet Championship outings. Find out more about the officials chosen for tomorrow's game below.

Referee: Tony Harrington

Assistant Referees: Robert Hyde and Daniel Leach

Fourth Official: Andy Woolmer

It'll be a case of third time lucky for Tony Harrington and Brentford in 2021 after the Cleveland official's first two Bees assignments of the year, both scheduled to be against Bristol City in January, were postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

All ten of Harrington's Brentford games have been in the second tier, with five of the last six coming on the road. Included in those games were away wins at Burton Albion in March 2018 and Rotherham United in early 2019. 

Last term the Cleveland official took charge of our 7-0 home demolition of Luton Town, awarding us two penalties that day, while this season's one outing was the opening day defeat at St Andrew's to Birmingham City. 

In total, Harrington's Brentford games have ended with three wins, two draws, and five defeats. 

So far this term, Harrington has shown 61 yellow cards and two reds in 23 matches. 

Reading 2020/21

294 fouls – Fewest in Championship

30 yellow cards – 22nd in Championship

0 red cards – Fewest in Championship
