Referee Watch – Tony Harrington

Barring any late changes, Tony Harrington of Cleveland will be in the middle for Blues’ FA Cup 3rd round clash with Bristol Rovers at St Andrews tonight. Here is a look at his stats.

Season Performance

Mr Harrington has taken charge of sixteen games this season, showing forty yellow cards and five reds. It’s worth noting that Mr Harrington has only taken charge of three Championship level games in his career.

Last Blues Game Refereed

Mr Harrington has never officiated in a Blues game before.

Suspension Watch

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

9 yellow cards – Paul Robinson (one match suspension served)
4 yellow cards –  Kyle Bartley
3 yellow cards – Neal Eardley, Olly Lee,  Tom Adeyemi, Lee Novak, and Jonathan Spector

1 yellow card –  Darren Ambrose, Koby Arthur, Wade Elliott, Matt Green,  Colin Doyle, David Murphy, Darren Randolph, Hayden Mullins,  Chris Burke 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.

    So we’re the guinea pigs for yet another green ref. With an average of 3 yellows per game and a sending off every 3 or so games, it’s probably bye bye Robbo for a couple of games (if the cup games count that is.)

    lets hope robbo stays sub lol

    okay then i will accept the 3 yellows if they get the red…… on a more important note hope he keep them in his pocket…………………sometimes officials spoilt games………………..

  • hi do not worry to much these days about Refs, its pointless them being on the pitch anyway , after seeing pulling defenders to the floor in the pen area holding down players same, scared to make a correct decision absolutly ruined football as we know it bring on instant playback viewed by off field officials the most important news today is the Clark as missed out on Grant Holt and the vilens might
    get him, now that is sad .
