Ref watch: Kevin Friend takes the whistle for Blackpool cup clash

Confirmation of match officials for Tuesday night's Checkatrade Trophy group game

Kevin Friend will officiate Wanderers’ Checkatrade Trophy clash with Blackpool at Macron Stadium on Tuesday night.

He has overseen four matches so far this season, issuing 23 yellows and no red cards.

The Leicestershire based official has been involved in the professional game for the past 14 seasons, mostly in the top flight of English football, and has been the man in the middle of numerous Bolton games in the past.

The last meanwhile was the Whites’ FA Cup clash with Liverpool at Anfield back in January 2015.

His final Blackpool game meanwhile came in May 2014 as the Seasiders went down by three goals to nil at home to Charlton Athletic in the Sky Bet Championship.

Richard West and Derek Eaton will run the line, whilst Sebastian Stockbridge is the fourth official.
