Barring any late changes, Simon Hooper of Wiltshire will be in the middle for Blues’ Capital One Cup tie against Stoke City at St Andrews tonight. Here is a look at his stats.

Season Performance

Mr Hooper has taken charge of twelve games so far this season, showing forty-six yellow cards and one red. Last season he took charge of forty matches, showing one hundred and nine yellow cards and five reds.

Last Blues Game Refereed

The last game involving Blues Mr Hooper took charge of was the home defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion back in August. In that game Mr Hooper showed four yellow cards – to Neal Eardley and Paul Robinson of Blues and to Gordon Greer and Ashley Barnes of Brighton. His performance was rated as adequate by Colin Tattum in his match report.

Suspension Watch

6 yellow cards – Paul Robinson (one match suspension served)
3 yellow cards – Neal Eardley, Dan Burn and Jonathan Spector

1 yellow card –   Darren Ambrose, Lee Novak, Koby Arthur, Wade Elliott,  Jesse Lingard, Matt Green, Nikola Zigic, Colin Doyle, David Murphy, Paul Caddis, Callum Reilly and Andrew Shinnie

The “cut-off” point where a fifth yellow card will no longer attract a suspension is after December 31 2013 and the point where a tenth yellow card will no longer attract a suspension is after April 13 2014.
