Referee Watch – Mark Halsey

Barring any late changes, Mark Halsey of Lancashire will be in the middle for Blues’ game against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground on Saturday. Here is a look at his stats.

Season Performance

So far this season Mr Halsey has been in charge of two games – the Championship fixture between Brighton and Hove Albion and Cardiff City, and the Premier League fixture between Tottenham Hotspur and Norwich. He has shown two yellow cards and one red this season; the red coming in the Premier League game where he sent off Tom Huddlestone for a mistimed challenge on Johnny Howson

Last Blues Game Refereed

The last game involving Blues that Mr Halsey was in the middle for was the playoff semi final first leg game against Blackpool at Bloomfield Road at the end of last season. In that game Mr Halsey didn’t show a card and I didn’t mention him in my match report which is a positive.

Last Championship Game Refereed

The last game in this division that was officiated by Mark Halsey was the game between Brighton and Cardiff on August 21. In that game Mr Halsey showed one yellow card, which was to former Blues midfielder Jordon Mutch. He wasn’t mentioned in the match report by the Argus or by WalesOnline which again I see as a positive.

All stas from Soccerbase

As Jim the Nose correctly noted on smallheathalliance.com, the red card showed to Tom Huddlestone was later rescinded by the FA.
