Referee Watch – Eddie Ilderton

Barring any late changes, Eddie Ilderton of Tyne and Wear will be in the middle for Blues’ game against Burnley at St Andrews tomorrow. Here is a look at his stats.

Season Performance

Mr Ilderton has taken charge of seventeen games so far this season and has shown fifty-six yellow cards and two reds. Of those games eight have been in the Championship and in those games Mr Ilderton has handed out twenty-five bookings. Last season he was in the middle for thirty-seven games, showing seventy-nine yellows and six reds. Of those games, seventeen were in the Championship and in those games Mr Ilderton booked thirty-four players and sent off two.

Last Blues Game Refereed

Mr Ilderton has not taken charge of a Blues game before.

Last Championship Game Refereed

The last game at this level which Mr Ilderton took charge of was the 2-2 draw between Huddersfield Town and Bolton Wanderers on December 8. In that game he handed out six yellow cards, to Paul Dixon, Anthony Gerrard, Adam Clayton, Lee Novak and James Vaughan of Huddersfield and to Adam Bogdan of Bolton. His performance drew no comment from the Huddersfield Examiner nor the Bolton News which I take to be a positive sign.
