We find ourselves facing Bradford on Tuesday, this will be the first time we will see Graham Alexander since he was sacked back in October.
This brings me to the referee for Tuesday night, OLLIE YATES. He has refereed 25 games so far this season, given out 105 yellow cards. Four of these cards turned into red, and he has given out two straight red cards.
He’s also given out 8 penalties.
In his first season as a referee, he officiated five Premier League 2 games. In the 2016/2017 season, he became an EFL referee. His first encounter with MK Dons was MK Dons vs Burton, where we lost 3-0. He has refereed our matches before, and Tuesday will be his fifth time.
His first game with Bradford was Bradford vs Rochdale, which finished 1-1. He has refereed Bradford games 6 times. This game will be his 7th.
Ollie’s assistant referees are Richard Wigglesworth and Bradley Hall, and his fourth official is Sebastian Stockbridge.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
