The Play-Offs get underway on Monday as we head to the South Coast for our First Leg against Jonathan Woodgate's Cherries. Both sides will look to take an advantage with them into next Saturday's return leg at the Brentford Community Stadium and the match officials have now been confirmed for the game.
Referee: Tim Robinson
Assistant Referee: Ian Cooper and Wade Smith
Fourth Official: Dean Whitestone
A familiar face, West Sussex official Tim Robinson will take charge of Monday's First Leg against AFC Bournemouth. The match will be Robinson's 23rd in charge of The Bees, which is three more than any other EFL Club.
Of those previous matches, we have won ten, drawn six, and lost six. 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, 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 four outings have resulted in three Bees wins and one defeat. He was the man in charge of December's trip to Rotherham, our 2-0 win wrapped up by a late Ivan Toney penalty after Mikael Miller had been sent off for the hosts. He then took our Emirates FA Cup Third Round victory over Middlesbrough and our 3-2 Sky Bet Championship win over Bristol Rovers before overseeing March's 1-0 defeat to eventual champions Norwich City at Carrow Road.
In 39 games this season, Robinson has shown 121 yellow cards and five reds.
