Mr Brown has taken charge of five games so far this season, showing eight yellow cards and one red card, with today being his first Championship game of the season. Last season Mr Brown took charge of twenty-four games, giving out sixty-one cautions and sending off six players. Of those games, five were in the Championship and those games yielded sixteen yellow cards and one red.

Last Blues Game Refereed

The last game involving Blues that Mr Brown was in charge of was the 3-1 defeat to Middlesbrough back in August 2011. That day Mr Brown booked four players – Carl Ikeme and Barry Robson of Boro and Steven Caldwell and Chris Burke of Blues.

Last Championship Game Refereed

The last game at this level that Mr Brown officiated in was the match between Huddersfield and Cardiff on February 9 of this year, which saw Mr Brown book Jack Hunt and Joel Lynch of Huddersfield and Andrew Taylor, Craig Bellamy and Ben Nugent of Cardiff.
