Tomorrow night's referee, Charles Breakspear from Walton-on-Thames, has refereed two Southend matches before and in both of them he sent off an opposing player. Sadly we only got a defeat and a draw (and subsequent penalty shoot-out defeat) to show for our numerical advantage. So, third time luck and a win ???

He is one of the less experienced officials with this being his second season.

Those previous matches were, firstly, our 3-1 home defeat to Morecambe. Their sub got a red some 7 minutes after coming on and there was a yellow apiece (Timlin for us) and this season he presided over the JPT match at Wimbledon where unusually all four cards (3 yellows and a red) went to the home team.

His yellow card count is average and red a shade on the high side with 45 yellows and 6 reds from 15 games. He has not been given any Championship matches for the best part of a year.

He refereed the Brewers as recently as last month - their 1-1 home draw with Plymouth and last Saturday he presided over Col U's narrow 4-1 home defeat in front of less than 3,000.

Assisting are Ryan T Atkin from London and Adrian Sannerude from Lowestoft with fully fledged League Referee, Michael Bull from Chelmsford acting as 4th Official.
