Martin Coy to referee Lincoln City Checkatrade Trophy clash

8 October 2018

Martin Coy will be the man in the middle for the Iron's home Checkatrade Trophy clash against Lincoln City.

The official will travel to Glanford Park for his eleventh game of the campaign and his second in the Checkatrade Trophy.

His first game of the campaign was Grimsby Town's emphatic opening day home defeat against Forest Green Rovers in which he showed two cautions. His most recent appointment came a week ago when he oversaw the Mariners once more - this time a 1-0 away victory at Carlisle United. On that occasion, he issued another two yellow cards.

He's taken charge of the Iron on one previous occasion, back in December 2017 when the side beat Southend United 3-1 at Glanford Park. On that night, he issued one caution.

Meanwhile, he's refereed Lincoln City on eight occasions - their most recent being 2-1 home win against Forest Green Rovers back in December 2017 when he issued two cautions. In total, he's shown 28 yellow cards and no reds in the eight Imps games he's been involved in.

In 2017-18 - his debut campaign in the EFL - he took charge of 34 games, issuing 69 yellow cards and three reds. So far in this campaign, he has officiated in ten encounters, showing 23 yellows and no reds.

On Tuesday, Coy will be assisted by Duncan Street and Billy Khatib, while James Oldham has been appointed as the fourth official.
