Trevor Kettle will be the referee in charge of Tuesday evening’s League One fixture between Scunthorpe United and Port Vale at Glanford Park.The Berkshire based official will be overseeing his 20th game this season and his 7th League One match.
He is yet to send a player off this season and has shown 52 yellow cards. He has already officiated Port Vale once this season, in what was his first game of the 2014/2015 campaign, when he took charge of their 2-1 victory over Coventry at the Ricoh Arena in November.
He showed six cards in the match, including four yellow cards to players from Port Vale, and that has been the most cards he has shown one single team this year.
The last time he took charge of a Scunthorpe game came in April last year when he refereed the 2-0 defeat at Exeter City in the Iron’s promotion winning year.
His last outing at Glanford Park was in 2012, when he sent off David Mirfin in a 1-1 draw with Brentford after Leon Clarke had cancelled out Harry Forrester’s opener.
Scunthorpe United go into Tuesday’s fixture one place above their opponents, with Port Vale not having won any of their previous seven games.
Mark Robins’ side are 17th in the Sky Bet League One table after they beat Crawley 2-1 on Saturday, with goals from Paddy Madden and a deflected strike from Jordan Clarke.
Referee Kettle will be assisted by Graeme Fyvie and Nick Greenhalgh, with Paul Graham taking the fourth official responsibilities.
