David Phillips will be the ‘man in the middle’ for Tuesday night’s clash between MK Dons and Shrewsbury Town.
Phillips, 46, has been officiating in the Football League since 2008 and has taken charge of six games involving the Dons during his career. During them matches, the West Sussex-based whistle-blower has brandished 19 yellow cards, nine to Dons players, and three red cards.
His last Dons appointment was earlier this season, when he refereed the 1-0 defeat to Swindon Town in August, a game in which Dean Lewington was sent off for violent conduct in the first half. Lewington has also been booked by the official in the past, along with Stephen Gleeson, Luke Chadwick and Shaun Williams.
This season, Phillips has marshalled 28 games, showing 101 yellow cards and seven red cards. In his last appointment, Saturday 9th March, he booked three players in Rochdale’s 4-1 victory over Wycombe Wanderers at Spotland.
