The EFL have appointed the officials for our away fixture at Forest Green Rovers this coming weekend.
Taking charge of the match will be Keith Stroud, as he makes his 17th appearance this season.
From those 16 appearances, Stroud has yet to officiate lower than League One as the bulk of his games have been in the Championship – therefore, it will be the first time he has been in charge of a Vale game this season.
Out of the 16 games so far, he has refereed in:
14 Championship games
2 League One games
He has given out 77 yellow cards this season and six reds. Stroud will be assisted by Christopher Husband and Michael D’Aguilar who come in as linesmen, and Andy Davies will be fourth official for the afternoon.
