Referee Watch – Robert Madley

Barring any late changes, Robert Madley of West Yorkshire will be in the middle for Blues’ game against Reading at St Andrews on Saturday. Here is a look at his stats.

Season Performance

Mr Madley has officiated in thirty-four games this season, showing sixty-nine yellow cards and four reds. Of those games, eight have been in the Championship where he has shown sixteen yellow cards and no reds. Mr Madley is only in the third year of being a ref and has been in the middle for just ten Championship games.

Last Blues Match Refereed

The only Blues match Mr Madley has been in the middle for was the 2-1 win over Burnley back in November. In that game he showed two cautions – one to David Murphy of Blues and one to Brian Easton of Burnley. In my match report here I didn’t mention the ref (which I see as a positive sign); in Tatts’ Birmingham Mail report he didn’t mention the ref either.

Last Championship Game Refereed

The last championship game Mr Madley took charge of was the 2-2 draw between Cardiff and Coventry in March, where he showed yellow cards to just Aron Gunnarsson of the Welsh side. Neither Wales Online nor the Coventry Evening Telegraph mention the ref bar the award of the penalty in the game and that wasn’t disputed by either newspaper. Another positive sign.
