Mr Jones has taken charge of two matches so far this season, showing six yellow cards and one red. Of those games one has been in the Championship and in that game Mr Jones gave out four yellow cards. Last season, Mr Jones took charge of thirty-one games, showing eighty-five yellow cards and three reds. Of those games four were in the Championship and those yielded seven cautions.
