Referee Watch – Darren Deadman

Barring any late changes, Darren Deadman of Cheshunt will be in the middle for Blues’ Championship game against Nottingham Forest Today. Here is a look at his stats.

Season Performance

So far this season Mr Deadman has taken charge of twenty-four games, showing eighty-four yellow cards and four reds. Of those games only two have been in the Championship with the majority being in the lower leagues, and in those two games Mr Deadman has cautioned seven players.

Last Blues Game Refereed

The last Blues game Mr Deadman was in charge of was the 1-1 draw with West Ham United on Boxing Day, 2011. In that game Mr Deadman showed yellow cards to four West Ham players (George McCartney, Julien Faubert, Kevin Nolan and Mark Noble) and his performance did nothing to merit a mention in match reflections – always a positive.

Last Championship Game Refereed

The last game in this division officiated by Mr Deadman was the 1-0 home win for Leeds United over Barnsley on October 6 2012. In that game Mr Deadman booked five players (Jason Pearce, Aidy White, Rodolph Austin and Luciano Becchio of Leeds and Craig Davies of Barnsley), and attracted criticism for awarding a penalty to Leeds for a foul which clearly happened outside the box.
