Tim Robinson to take charge of weekend's FA Cup Third Round tie

Match Officials confirmed for visit from Middlesbrough

7 January 2021

Our Emirates FA Cup campaign begins on Saturday evening as we take on Middlesbrough at the Brentford Community Stadium. It'll be our second home meeting with Boro in less than two months and the match officials for the game have now been confirmed.

Referee: Tim Robinson

Assistant Referee: George Byrne and Michael George

Fourth Official: John Busby

West Sussex official Tim Robinson has been handed this weekend's game against Middlesbrough in the Emirates FA Cup Third Round.

The match will be Robinson's 20th in charge of The Bees, which is the most of any EFL Club.

Of those previous matches, we have won eight, drawn six, and lost five. Robinson was in charge of four Brentford matches last term. The first two, on the road at Charlton Athletic and then at home to Nottingham Forest, ended in 1-0 defeats. We then came from 2-0 down to draw with Blackburn Rovers in February with both sides scoring from the spot at Griffin Park. His final game in charge last campaign was July's 3-1 victory over Derby County at Pride Park.

This season's one outing came last month away at Rotherham United as we picked up a 2-0 win, Mickel Miller seeing red giving away the penalty which Ivan Toney converted late on to make the game safe.

That red was one of five he has shown in 17 games, alongside 58 yellow cards.
