Referee Watch – Darren Deadman

Barring any late changes, Darren Deadman of Cambridgeshire will be in the middle for Blues’ Championship game against Huddersfield Town at St Andrew’s today. Here is a look at his stats.

Season Performance

Mr Deadman has taken charge of twenty-seven games so far this season, showing eighty-seven yellow cards and five reds. Of those games, six have been in the Championship where he has given out twenty-five cautions and sent off one player.

Last Blues Game Refereed

The last match involving Blues that Mr Deadman took charge of was the match between Blues and Nottingham Forest in February 2013. In that game, Mr Deadman handed out yellow cards to Morgaro Gomis and Wade Elliott of Blues and didn’t merit much of a mention in my match report bar talk of an “iffy” penalty.

Last Championship Game Refereed

The last match at this level that Mr Deadman took charge of was Tuesday’s game between Brighton and Leeds United. In that game Mr Deadman handed out bookings to Inigo Calderon of Brighton and to Stephen Warnock, Luke Murphy and Noel Hunt of Leeds.

Suspension Watch

1 red card – Wade Elliott (three match suspension served)

11 yellow cards – Paul Robinson (two suspensions served)
4 yellow cards –  Olly Lee.
3 yellow cards – Neal Eardley, Tom Adeyemi, Federico Macheda, Lee Novak, and Jonathan Spector

1 yellow card –   Koby Arthur, Wade Elliott, Matt Green,  Colin Doyle, David Murphy, Darren Randolph, Chris Burke, Emyr Huws, Brian Howard, Albert Rusnak 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.
