The Man In The Middle

Friday’s referee is Robert Lewis from Shrewsbury who was promoted to the National List of Referees in 2005. Last season he took charge of Wycombe’s 2-0 opening day victory over Morecambe and their 3-1 FA Cup win over Chelmsford. During the current campaign he’s issued 4 red and 63 yellow cards in 23 games.



Prediction

Wycombe 2 Carlisle 1
