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

He has refereed over 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 refed Fulham in December 2019 when we lost 1-0 away at Brentford. He booked one player from each team with the Fulham player being Joe Bryan who was booked for a foul in the twelfth minute.

It was two years prior to the Brentford that Ref Langford had refed Fulham in September 2017 when we drew 1-1 at home to Middlesbrough and he booked three players, two from Fulham, Kevin McDonald and Rui Fonte both for fouls. Aboubakar Kamara scored our only goal, in the 86th minute, it was a header from very close range to the top right corner, assisted by Ryan Sessegnon with a cross.

On Boxing Day 2016 Ref Langford bossed Fulham when we beat Ipswich 2-0 at Portman Road. Mr Langford's cards had a relatively quiet game with only a card for two Ipswich players and McDonald of Fulhan, for a foul, despite a total of 25 fouls during the whole game.

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

QPR last met up with Mr Langford in August 2021 when they drew at home to Millwall. Mr Langford yellow carded three players all from the Millwall team.

Last season Ref Langford was in charge of 30 games and gave out 107 yellows, an average of 3.6 yellows per game, and 6 reds.

His busiest game recently was the Blackburn 2-2 draw with Luton game in September 2021 when he dished out 9 yellows, 4 to the home side and five to the visiting side. Mr Langford also dished out 9 yellows in a game between Norwich and QPR in December 2020, 3 to the homeside and 6 to the visiting QPR.
