Anthony Backhouse to referee Bristol Rovers home encounter

15 December 2021

Anthony Backhouse will be the man in the middle for the Iron's home Sky Bet League Two game against Bristol Rovers on Saturday.

The Cumbria-based official will travel to the Sands Venue Stadium for his 19th game of the campaign and his sixth in Sky Bet League Two. The current season is Backhouse's fifth as an EFL official.

He's refereed the Iron on seven previous occasions, with three of those coming on home soil. The first of those games was a 2-0 victory over Portsmouth in which he showed no cards, while he also took charge of our last game of last season prior to lockdown, sending off Levi Sutton against Grimsby Town. Last season, he was the referee when we lost 2-0 at Tranmere Rovers last October, where he showed four yellow cards, and then for the 2-0 defeat at Bolton Wanderers in February, during which five yellow cards were shown.

This season he has officiated 18 games, showing 67 yellow cards and no reds.

On Saturday, Backhouse will be assisted by Simon Clayton and Paul Stonier, while Wayne Grunnill has been appointed as the fourth official.
