The FA cup 3rd round replay between Bournemouth and the Latics will be refereed by West Yorkshire official Jon Moss
The Bradford born whistle blower has already taken charge of two Latics games this season, both in the Premier League, our 2-1 win over West Ham at the DW Stadium and the 1-0 home defeat to Arsenal
Most of Jon Moss' 22 years of whistle blowing experience have come in the local leagues in and around West Yorkshire and his home town of Leeds. He was still refereeing in the West Yorkshire and Leeds combination Sunday League up until 2002.
42 year old Moss is a head teacher at a West Yorkshire primary school, so he will be used to dealing with little brats.
Speaking to BBC Radio Leeds Moss was asked 'to describe your worst experience as a referee', to which he replied:
'As referees we are quite self-critical and analyse each and every game decision. There is nothing worse than giving an incorrect decision whether it is getting a throw in wrong or a big decision such as a penalty or sending off.'
'When I was refereeing in the Conference, I once awarded a correct penalty to Leigh RMI against Scarborough.
'As I blew my whistle to award the penalty kick the ball fell to another forward who scored. Had I delayed my whistle for a second I could have played the advantage leading to a goal?
'The Leigh striker took the penalty, which the goalkeeper saved. He jumped up and kicked the ball straight down the pitch to the Scarborough forward who ran through and scored.'
Whoops, let's hope we have none of that tomorrow night!!!
