Referee Watch – Mark Haywood

Barring any late changes, Mark Haywood of West Yorkshire will be in the middle for Blues’ Championship game against Blackburn Rovers at St Andrew’s today. Here is a look at his stats.

Season Performance

Mr Haywood has taken charge of thirty-three games this season, showing sixty-nine yellow cards and five reds. Of those games, seven have been in the Championship and in those games Mr Haywood has booked twelve players and sent two off.

Last Blues Game Refereed

The last game involving Blues that Mr Haywood officiated in was the 1-0 defeat to Watford on February 11. In that game, Mr Haywood booked two players – Fernando Forestieri and Hector Bellerin of Watford – and his performance didn’t merit a mention by Colin Tattum in his match report.

Last Championship Game Refereed

The last game at this level that Mr Haywood took charge of was the match between Derby and Charlton at the end of March. Mr Haywood kept his cards in his pocket for that game.

Suspension Watch

15 yellow cards – Paul Robinson (three match ban to serve, two suspensions previously served)
6 yellow cards – Jonathan Spector
5 yellow cards –  Nikola Zigic, Callum Reilly and Olly Lee
4 yellow cards –  Federico Macheda and Paul Caddis
3 yellow cards – Neal Eardley, Mitch Hancox, Tom Adeyemi, Shane Ferguson and Lee Novak
2 yellow cards – Darren Randolph
1 yellow card –   Koby Arthur,  Matt Green,  Colin Doyle,  Chris Burke, Emyr Huws, Brian Howard, Albert Rusnak, Jordon Ibe 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. If a player collects fifteen yellow cards before the end of the season they will attract a three match ban.
