Referee Watch – Kevin Wright

Barring any late changes, Kevin Wright of Cambridgeshire will be in the middle for Blues’ Championship game against Barnsley at Oakwell today. Here is a look at his stats.

Season Performance

Mr Wright has taken charge of six games so far this season, showing just fifteen yellow cards in those fixtures. Of those matches, only one has been in the Championship and that yielded two yellow cards.

Last Blues Game Refereed

The last Blues game Mr Wright took charge of was the 2-0 win over Leicester way back in October 2011. In that game he showed one yellow card (to Jean Beausejour of Blues) but was substituted at half time and his replacement sent off Matt Mills.

Last Championship Game Refereed

The last game in this division that Mr Wright officiated in was the 1-0 away win by Charlton over Blackburn Rovers last month. In that game, Mr Wright booked just two players – Todd Kane and Scott Dann of the home side.

Suspension Watch

1 red card – Wade Elliott (three match suspension served), Kyle Bartley (one match suspension served)

7 yellow cards – Paul Robinson (one match suspension served)
3 yellow cards – Neal Eardley, Dan Burn and Jonathan Spector
2 yellow cards – Tom Adeyemi, Kyle Bartley, Mitch Hancox, and Shane Ferguson
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, Dariusz Dudka 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.

    Just 1 sending off in 16 league games is pretty good in my opinion. We just need to cut out some of the silly yellow cards… although, the poor standard of referreing doesn’t help. But, it seems we have a half decent ref today for a change. We’ll see.
