Nottinghamshire referee James Adcock will be in charge of Scunthorpe United’s Sky Bet League One clash at Port Vale on Tuesday night.

Adcock has refereed 13 games in all competitions this season, issuing 45 yellow cards and two reds. One of those reds came on Saturday when he was in charge of Ipswich Town and Blackburn Rovers in the Championship, sending off Blackburn defender Matt Kilgallon.

He recently refereed the League One clash between Gillingham and Walsall, distributing only one yellow card in what has been his only League One appointment this season.

Last season he refereed 31 games, brandishing 102 yellow cards and six reds.

The last Iron game he officiated was the 0-0 home draw against Wycombe last campaign. Adcock dished out three yellows on that day, with Niall Canavan the only Iron player to go in the book.

The season before last he refereed the Iron’s 4-0 defeat at home to Yeovil and booked six players. Josh Walker, Robbie Gibbons and Mark Duffy were booked for United, with three Yeovil players also going in the book.

Adcock was the official for one Port Vale game last season, showing no cards in their 0-0 away draw at Shrewsbury.

The Nottinghamshire referee was promoted to the Football League list of referees in 2011/12, after training to become an official at the age of 14.

Adock is joined by Stuart Eagland and Nigel Smith, who will be running the lines assisting Adcock with Michael D'aguilar in charge of fourth official duties.
