Ref Watch: Bristol City (a) – Oliver Langford

Oliver Langford will oversee Saturday's Sky Bet Championship clash away at Bristol City.

A very experienced match official, Langford has eight seasons as an EFL referee under his belt. As part of the PGMO development programme, he has officiated in the Dallas Cup and Algarve Cup, and has now taken charge of more than 200 EFL matches.

Langford has officiated 38 games so far this term, brandishing 116 yellow cards and five red cards, with three of those fixtures involving the Tigers. He officiated our 4-0 home win against Bolton Wanderers in August and January’s Emirates FA Cup Third Round win at Blackburn before being the man in the middle for our 2-0 league win at Nottingham Forest in February.

In total, Langford has taken charge of ten games involving the Tigers, which has brought seven wins, one draw and two defeats.

Assisting Langford will be Robert Merchant and James Wilson, while Trevor Kettle will be on fourth official duty.
