Papa Johns on Tuesday night against West Ham United U21’s in what is possibly a must win game if we want to progress in this competition after losing last month against Cheltenham Town.
The man in the middle is Craig Hicks from Surrey who has so far officiated at just 7 games this season in which he has booked 21 players, none of which he converted to a double yellow, he has sent one player off and awarded no penalties.
We last saw Mr Hicks back in March 2022 when we beat Cheltenham Town 3-1 at Stadium MK. Troy Parrott with a brace scored his first goals since September, and Mo Eisa chipped in with the other goal, the win putting the Dons level on points with second placed Wigan Athletic.
Last season Mr Hicks oversaw a whopping 36 games booking and equally impressive he booked 112 players, converting 4 of those to double yellows. In addition, he sent off 3 players and awarded 4 penalties.
Assisting Mr Hicks will be Stephen Finch and a rare appearance by Lisa Rashid, the 4th Official is Aaron Farmer.
