David Webb to take charge of trip to Pride Park

Match officials confirmed for tomorrow's game against Derby County

15 March 2021

We're on the road again tomorrow night looking to follow up Friday's success against Blackburn Rovers with a win against Derby County. The Rams have a seven point gap between themselves and the bottom three but are without a win in five. Ahead of tomorrow's trip to the East Midlands, the match officials have been confirmed.

Referee: David Webb

Assistant Referees: Ian Cooper and Wade Smith

Fourth Official: Will Finnie

David Webb joined the EFL list as an Assistant in 2006 before graduating to being the main man two years later. Webb represented PGMOL at the Dallas Cup in 2009, spent time refereeing in Australia in 2018, and also refereed the League Two Play-Off Final between Coventry City and Exeter City that same year.

His first game in the top four divisions involved The Bees, as he took charge of our 1-0 defeat at Bury on the opening day of the 2008/09 season. 

The Lancashire official has taken charge of 12 Brentford games since then, including twice this campaign. The first of those came against Wayne Rooney's Derby County with The Rams holding us to a 0-0 draw in December before he oversaw January's 7-2 win at home to Wycombe Wanderers. 

We're unbeaten in seven under Webb, stretching back to August 2015. Also in that run of games were home wins over Sheffield Wednesday in August 2018 and Derby County a year later, and 3-1 victories at Preston North End in January 2016 and Barnsley in September 2019, a game which saw Ollie Watkins net a hat-trick of headers. 

So far this season, Webb has shown 70 yellow cards and four red cards in 28 matches. 

Derby County 2020/21

428 fouls – 18th in Sky Bet Championship

60 yellow cards – 5th in Sky Bet Championship

1 red card - 18th in Sky Bet Championship
