Just like for the postponed fixture earlier this season, Robert Lewis will be the man in in the middle for Rovers’ trip to Blackpool in midweek.
Lewis hasn’t had much luck when it comes to officiating Rovers matches in recent years. The last time he took charge of a Rovers match, he left the field with concussion midway through the second half of Rovers’ away defeat to Charlton Athletic after an accidental collision with then-Addicks striker Josh Magennis.
Tuesday will be the second time he has been appointed to a Rovers match since that day in 2017 – with the first being the postponed original fixture.
Lewis has more than a decade of experience in the EFL and has taken charge of 29 games in the current campaign handing out 78 yellow cards and four reds.
As was the case for the original fixture, he will be assisted by Kevil Mulraine and Paul Graham. Richard Woodward is the fourth official.
