Meet The Ref - Latics v Stoke - Martin Atkinson

Meet The Ref - Latics v Stoke - Martin Atkinson

The referee for this Saturday's encounter at the DW Stadium between Wigan Athletic and Stoke City is Bradford based official, Martin Atkinson

The over officious whistle blower took charge of three Latics games last season, home and away against Man City, we lost them both and the 1-1 draw with Chelsea at the DW

So far this season Atkinson has had just two games making ten bookings.

The 41 year old has been refereeing since he was 16, he was a Conference referee in 2002, but he had a rapid rise and had progressed all the way to the Premier League by 2005, know to many as a one to favour the big clubs, Atkinson is very whistle happy

Referee: M Atkinson
Assistants: S Burt, R West
Fourth Official: I Williamson

Too fussy by a long way

We'll be seeing plenty of yellow cards thrown around on Saturday then. Good example of a referee who doesn't let the game flow
