Referee Oliver Langford has been a League referee since August 2008 prior to which he reffed in the Blue Sq Premier.

He has refereed approaching 200 EFL matches and has taken charge of many high profile games, including several play-off semi-finals. In summer of 2016 he became part of the Select Group 2 of fulltime Championship referees.

Ref Langford last reffed Fulham just three weeks ago when he bossed the Reading game at The Cottage in the crushing of Reading 5-0. Mr Langford took a strong dislike to Reading yellow carding five players, four from Reading, and red carding another Reading player for kicking out at Stefan Johansen.

Ref Langford previously reffed Fulham in the 2015/2016 season finale 1-0 victory against Bolton in which no one was yellow or red carded.

Ipswich were last bossed by Ref Langford in October of this year when Ipswich beat Burton 2-0 at Portman Road. He yellow carded three players, one from Ipswich.

Last season Ref Langford was in charge of 41 games and gave out 99 yellows, a low average of just over two yellows per game, and 4 reds. His busiest game was between Burton and Millwall when he dished out seven yellows and one red card.

This season he has reffed 22 games so far issuing 68 yellows, an increased but still below average of 3.1 yellow cards per game, and 4 red.
