The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Coventry City this weekend.

Port Vale host Coventry City on Sunday February 7 for the game at Vale Park and the match carries a 2pm kick off.

Referee: Philip Gibbs
Linesmen: James Mainwaring and Brian Durie
Fourth Official: Matt Eva

Match Day referee Gibbs (West Midlands) is yet to officiate a Port Vale game this season.

He has however only already taken in eleven other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a total of 30 yellow cards and two red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Shrewsbury and Barnsley on January 16 with six yellows shown, in the matches between Yeovil and Stevenage on November 14, and Wimbledon and Wycombe on November 21 he showed four yellows a piece.

Let`s hope it`s not another repeat and more of our players edge closer to automatic bans.
