The match officials for Leeds United’s Emirates FA Cup third round tie with Peterborough United on Sunday have been confirmed with Sam Allison set to be the referee.

Born in Wiltshire, the 43-year-old who is a firefighter by trade, became a professional referee in 2020 and took charge of his first Premier League fixture on Boxing Day, overseeing Luton Town’s 3-2 away victory against Sheffield United.

He had previously taken charge of Leeds United on just one occasion, which came earlier this season, as Swansea City were defeated 3-1 in the Sky Bet Championship, in which he awarded no cautions to Leeds players.

For Peterborough United, Allison has been the man in the middle on three occasions, with the Posh winning once and losing twice.

He has issued four yellow cards to Peterborough players previously and awarded one penalty for the Posh and one against.  His last match in charge of the London Road outfit was their 2-1 home defeat to Barnsley in December 2022.

Allsion’s last match in charge was on New Year's Day, when Leicester City were 4-1 winners against Huddersfield Town in the Sky Bet Championship.
