      morning referee

      Sam Barrott has the whistle for tomorrow’s game at Ashton Gate in what will be his 34th game of the season, but only his third in the Championship.

      Barrott has issued 95 yellow cards -2.8 per game- and three red cards in 2022/23, mainly at the League One and League Two levels.

      Harry Cornick and City could be the perfect couple
