Referee Watch – Michael Naylor

Barring any late changes, Michael Naylor of South Yorkshire will be in the middle for Blues’ Championship game against AFC Bournemouth at the Goldsands Stadium today. Here is a look at his stats.

Season Performance

Mr Naylor has taken charge of sixteen matches so far this season, handing out twenty-seven yellow cards and one red. Of those games, five have been in the Championship and those have yielded seven yellow cards and one red.

Last Blues Match Refereed

The last game involving Blues that Mr Naylor officiated in was the away win over Bristol City last April. In that game he booked only one player – Nathan Redmond of Blues – and the referee’s performance attracted no comment from Colin Tattum in his match report.

Last Championship Game Refereed

The last game in this division Mr Naylor refereed was the goalless draw between Burnley and Watford at the start of the month. In that game Mr Naylor booked two players – Marco Cassetti and Nyron Nosworthy, both of Watford.

Suspension Watch

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

8 yellow cards – Paul Robinson (one match suspension served)
3 yellow cards – Neal Eardley, Dan Burn and Jonathan Spector
2 yellow cards – Tom Adeyemi, Lee Novak, Kyle Bartley, Mitch Hancox, and Shane Ferguson
1 yellow card –  Darren Ambrose, 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.
