Rotherham United welcome Southend to the New York Stadium on Saturday when Marc Edwards from County Durham who is in his first season as an EFL referee.
This will be the third time that the Millers and Marc have met this season the first being in the Football League Trophy when Doncaster Rovers were the visitors. Rotherham went in front on eleven minutes with an own goal from Joe Wright with Kieran Sadlier equalising for the visitors twenty-six minutes later. Rovers went in front nine minutes into the second half when Wright made amends for his goal in the wrong net but goals from Carlton Morris and Trevor Clarke, making his Rotherham debut, saw the Millers win three-two.
Marc was also in the middle for our Boxing Day game at the Greenhous Meadow when the Millers beat Shrewsbury Town two-one. Joe Mattock put the Millers in front on the hour mark with Aaron Pierre equalising six minutes later. Seven minutes into time added on at the end of the game saw Michael Smith head the ball home to give the Millers all three points.
This season Marc has been in charge of twenty-four games showing sixty yellow cards and one red card.
Running the line on Saturday we have Andrew Dallison and Ian Dudley with the Fourth Official being Paul Newhouse.
