Referee Watch – Michael Naylor

Barring any late changes, Michael Naylor of South Yorkshire will be in the middle for Blues’ Championship game against Bristol City at Ashton Gate. Here is a look at his stats.

Season Performance

Mr Naylor has taken charge of twenty-seven games so far this season, showing sixty-six yellow cards and three reds. Of those games, twelve have been in the Championship and in those games Mr Naylor has booked thirty-six players and sent off one.

Last Blues Game Refereed

The last game involving Blues that Mr Naylor took charge of was the 1-1 draw between Blackburn and Blues on November 10, 2012. In that game Mr Naylor booked two players – Jonathan Spector and Ravel Morrison of Blues and his performance barely merited a mention in Colin Tattum’s match report.

Last Championship Game Refereed

The last game in this division refereed by Mr Naylor was the 3-1 win for Forest over Wolves on March 9. In that game Mr Naylor only showed one card – a red one to Stephen Ward of Wolves and he received a mark of 7 from Bill Howell of the Birmingham Mail whilst he merited no mention in the thisisnottingham match report.

    I dont think we will see a Red card tomorrow and I think Blues will win 3-1 however we have to work their keeper more than we did against Leicester. We had a lot of possession with not so much end product. KRO

      Totally agree about working the keeper. If you’re going to put in crosses, they need to be outswingers, to tempt the keeper off his line. With inswingers, they need to be aimed between the 18yd line and the penalty spot. Anything inside that is usually swallowed by the keeper. Our tendancy this season – and last to be fair – is for most of our crosses to end up in the keeper’s hands. It’s so frustrating to watch and must be for strikers too. All that hard work undone because of a poor cross.

      As for tonight’s game, I think we’ll win, possibly by 2 goals, and relegate Bristol City.
