Referee confirmed for Luton clash - has taken charge of Leeds defeat this season

Leeds United will be looking to make it a perfect few days in the Championship when they welcome Luton Town to Elland Road on Tuesday.

The Whites returned to the top of the Championship on Saturday as they swept aside Fulham 3-0 in West Yorkshire.

With West Brom not playing until Wednesday, Marcelo Bielsa’s men have the chance to extend their lead to six points over the Baggies.

It was a game filled with incidents on Saturday, with one red card and a whole host of controversial decisions.

The officials missed a clear red card for Aleksandar Mitrovic for his elbow on Ben White, with the Serbian still receiving a three-game ban from the FA on Monday.

So, who are the officials against Luton? Leeds Live has confirmed that Jonn Brooks the man in the middle at Elland Road on Tuesday evening.

The Whites have history with Brooks, the referee officiating two of Leeds’ games this season already.

Brooks ironically took charge of the reverse fixture at Kennilworth Road earlier in the season, a game in which the Whites picked up all three points in a 2-1 victory.

He also took charge of the game against Charlton, the 1-0 defeat back in September. We all remember that one at the Valley.

It was the game where Kiko Casilla allegedly racially abused Jonathan Leko, something he was later charged with, the Spaniard now serving his ban for the incident.

Brooks will be hoping for a more straight-forward clash to officiate on Tuesday, but with so much on the line, nothing is ever simple in the Championship.
