Referee Andy Woolmer (Northamptonshire) Referee Andy Woolmer, age 49 years, keeps fit by walking his route around Northampton as a postman. He has been a National List referee since 2004 which was some twenty years after he first started refereeing at aged just sixteen.

He graduated through the United Counties League, Southern League and Conference route to the Football League National panel. Prior to achieving this he was also an Assistant for a total of ten seasons, which included four on the Select Group.

The last time Ref Woolmer bossed a Fulham game was on the 14th March 2015 in a Championship away game against Sheff Wed, it was a 1-1 draw and Turner was yellow carded.

Bristol City has not had the pleasure of being bossed by Ref Woolmer before.

Last season he refed 35 games and dished out 107 yellows and 1 reds, an under average rate of just about 3.1 yellows per game so not too bad. He is one of only five refs out of 71 who issued 1 or less red cards last season

Bristol City

Bristol City Manager Steve Cotterill Loan signing Nathan Baker could feature for Bristol City despite limping out of the derby at Cardiff with a hamstring problem.

Baker, signed on a season-long loan deal from Aston Villa on the final day of the summer transfer window, hobbled off inside 25 minutes of the goalless draw on Monday and was replaced by Joe Bryan.

It was feared at the time Baker could be out for several weeks, but boss Steve Cotterill said it is not a serious hamstring injury and rates the centre-back's chances of making it as 50-50.

Scott Wagstaff has returned to training after a calf problem, which has kept him out for two months but Cotterill is likely to name an unchanged side if Baker passes a fitness test.


Fulham Manager Kit Symons Fulham welcome Jamie O'Hara back from suspension for the visit to Bristol City's Ashton Gate Stadium.

The midfielder missed the 4-2 win over Reading after picking up his fifth booking of the season.

Jazz Richards injured his calf in that game and is likely to be missing for around three weeks, but Northern Ireland Under-21 captain Liam Donnelly has been recalled from a loan at Crawley.

Matt Smith and Scott Parker are back to full fitness and in contention for starting places.
