The match officials for Leeds United’s trip to Ashton Gate on Friday against Bristol City have been confirmed, with Stephen Martin set to take charge.

The Staffordshire based official is the son of former Premier League referee Andy, who officiated during the 1990s.

He is part of the Select Group 2 list of referees and has been an EFL match official since the 2012/13 campaign.

Martin last took charge of Leeds in December, overseeing the 4-0 Sky Bet Championship victory over Ipswich Town at Elland Road.

In total, Martin has refereed Leeds seven times in his career and the Whites have never lost, winning six matches and drawing once. In those matches, eight Leeds players were booked, whilst Joe Rodon was sent off earlier this season for a second yellow card, against Hull City in September.

Martin last took charge of Bristol City for their 1-0 victory over Sunderland in December.

This will be the 24th time he has taken charge of the Ashton Gate side, with the Robins winning 10, drawing six and losing seven when Martin has refereed. He has issued 28 yellow cards and one red card to Bristol City players.

Martin last took charge of a match last Sunday, overseeing the 1-1 draw between Queens Park Rangers and Huddersfield Town at Loftus Road.
