James in Charge

JAMES Adcock will be the referee when Argyle host Dagenham & Redbridge at Home Park on Saturday.

James' first time in charge of Argyle was a home game against Burton Albion in January 2012. The Greens won 2-1 thanks to a Simon Walton brace, the winner coming from a last minute penalty. Adcock also awarded a penalty to Argyle the second time he refereed the Pilgrims, although this time it was in vain, as Reuben Reid's strike from 12 yards came after Bury had already established a 2-1 lead, in a game at Gigg lane in August 2014. 

James' other encounters with Argyle were when he was the official for our 2-0 defeat at Coventry in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy last season, and the 2-2 draw at home to Oxford in March. However, Adcock only took charge of the first half, before being replaced at half-time because of injury. 

There were no cautions in the Oxford match, and that is little surprise. James is not a card-happy ref, having shown only 63 yellow cards in 28 fixtures this season. He has also only sent one player off.
