So here we go again.
Another chance for the Saddlers to get back on track this season as we travel to Colchester.
The Saddlers have not won since the opening day of the season and are hoping that the tides will turn very soon.
The match officials have been announced for this Saturday’s game and are as follows –
REFEREE – BRETT HUXTABLE
ASSISTANTS – ANDREW WILLIAMS AND DAN BONNEYWELL
FOURTH OFFICIAL – CARL FITCH-JACKSON
Huxtable has officiated Walsall on four occasions with the Saddlers winning two, drawing one and losing one.
The Saddlers have won the last two when he has officiated, our 3-2 win against Bradford last season despite Andy Cook being sent off after six minutes and our 2-1 home victory over Oxford in January 2018.
Interestingly he officiated seven league games whilst Darrell Clarke was in charge of Bristol Rovers with the Gas winning six of them – here’s hoping he is a good omen for Darrell Clarke.
So far this season Huxtable has officiated six games where he has dished out nineteen yellow cards.
