Saturday’s game against Gillingham will be refereed by John Brooks, who will be assisted by Adrian Tranter and Matthew Jones. The fourth official will be Craig Taylor. Brooks who hails from Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire is on the select group panel of assistant referees for the Premier League.
He last took charge of a Rovers game in our Conference season when we beat Southport in the run-in at the Memorial Stadium. On that day he showed yellow cards to Ellis Harrison and Nathan Blissett.
On two occasions this season he has showed eight yellow cards and one red card.
