Andy D’Urso will take charge of MK Dons’ npower League 1 fixture against Leyton Orient this Saturday.
The Essex-born referee is set to be officiate his first Dons game in almost a year, with his last match in charge of the men from MK1 coming at the end of last season when the Dons lost 1-0 at home to Walsall.
This season Mr D’Urso has refereed 36 games across the Championship, League 1 and 2 as well as the Capital One Cup and The FA Cup. During that time he has shown a total of 88 yellow cards and has also dismissed six players.
Mr D’Urso has been refereeing in the Football League and higher since 1994 and his career of 19-years has not come without controversy, most notably when he failed to send of Blackburn Rovers then-captain Barry Ferguson despite showing him two yellow cards in 2004.
Mr D’Urso has taken charge of 11 MK Dons matches over the last nine years and in that time he sent-off Dean Lewington and Jason Puncheon.
His last appointment came on Saturday when he was the man in the middle as Bolton beat Wolves 2-0.
