Brentford v Tranmere Rovers, Sky Bet League One, Griffin Park, March 11 2014
Referee: Trevor Kettle
Assistants: Alan Dale and Paul Harris
Fourth Official: Richard Kendall
Mr Kettle is one of the Football League’s most experienced referees, and he has regularly taken charge of Brentford games.
He first went on the Football League list at the start of the 2003/04 season and his first Bees game was the incident-packed 3-3 Football League Trophy draw with Barnet in October 2003 – two men were sent off and Brentford eventually won on penalties after extra time.
He sent off two Gillingham players when The Bees lost 3-2 in Kent in March 2006 and his last Brentford match was a 2-1 win over Notts County at Meadow Lane in December 2012.
He was at Griffin Park last month, acting as Fourth Office when The Bees hosted Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Brentford will be in their red and white shirts.
