The man in charge of Saturday's far from magical cup tie is Rob Lewis, from Shrewsbury. This is the fourth season of his second spell as a League referee, having lost his place in 2008 primarily due to injury.

Another one of our shorter officials, he was in charge of our opening game of the season against Plymouth when we won 1-0 (Corr) and he did pretty well; just a couple of cautions for them. Co-incidentally he also did the final game of last season, doubly co-incidentally against Morecambe. We, and he, did less well in that game losing by the only goal, Hurst's yellow being the only card shown.

His first visit to the Hall was for the 2-0 home victory over Luton (Bailey and a late goal from Walker) in 2007/8. Previously he had refereed our 3-0 defeat at Derby in the Championship the season before (five cautions in that match; unusually four to the home side).

More recently he presided over the dreadful 0-0 with Aldershot towards the end of the 2010/11 season. His performance, whilst only average, was rather better than that of the players. He cautioned Grant and Corr and one of theirs.

His other previous home game came on a Friday night last December, when 3 second half goals gave us the 3 points against Chesterfield. No cards.

Mr Lewis' main claim to fame is the fact that he was the assistant referee involved in the incredible decision when Tottenham's Pedro Mendes' long shot at Old Trafford was about two yards over the line but no goal was given.

This season he has refereed just 8 matches showing an above-average 30 yellow and 2 red cards.

Not to be confused with famous referee R. Lewis from Great Bookham, who refereed the Hillsborough tragedy match (and our 4-4 draw with Northampton).

Assisting him will be Thomas Rogers from Darlington with the other two officials being provided by Manchester FA. The other assistant is newspaper editor James Wilson from Knutsford and the fourth official will be Nicholas Gibbons from Oldham.

What is the average cards per game ratio for referees? Is there a big varience between League Two and the Premier League?

Cheers.

Amy Fearn is in the middle for an all non-league first round tie. Is this a first for a female referee?

I always think 3 single yellows per game is about average for League 2 (at present it is 3.02 !). Premiership is a shade higher and Championship and League 1 a shade lower - but not much in it.
