Referee Watch – David Coote

Barring any late changes, David Coote of Nottinghamshire will be in the middle for Blues’ Championship game with Bolton Wanderers at St Andrews. Here is a look at his stats.

Season Performance

Mr Coote has taken charge of eight games this season, handing out twenty-three yellow cards and one red. Of those games, four have been in the Championship and in those games he has dished out fourteen cautions and sent off one player. Last season, Mr Coote took charge of thirty-two games, showing ninety-six yellows and four reds. Of those games twelve were in the Championship and they yielded forty bookings.

Last Blues Game Refereed

The last game Mr Coote took charge of that involved Blues was the 1-0 away win over Middlesbrough on March 16. In that game Mr Coote booked two players – Ravel Morrison and Nikola Zigic – and his performance was described by Colin Tattum as sure with a sensible outlook.

Last Championship Game Refereed

The last game in this division refereed by Mr Coote was Tuesday’s game between Leeds and Bournemouth which finished 2-1 to the home side. In that game Mr Coote booked Rodolph Austin of Leeds United, and Marc Pugh and Simon Francis of Bournemouth and also sent off Bournemouth keeper Ryan Allsop for bringing down Noel Hunt.

Suspension Watch

5 yellow cards – Paul Robinson (one match suspension served)
3 yellow cards – Neal Eardley, Dan Burn and Jonathan Spector
2 yellow cards – Tom Adeyemi and Shane Ferguson
1 yellow card –   Darren Ambrose, Lee Novak, Koby Arthur, Wade Elliott,  Kyle Bartley, Jesse Lingard, Matt Green, Nikola Zigic, Colin Doyle and Andrew Shinnie

The “cut-off” point where a fifth yellow card will no longer attract a suspension is after December 31 2013 and the point where a tenth yellow card will no longer attract a suspension is after April 13 2014.

    Dan and Jonathan need to be careful with both on 3. From blues perceptive they are both important players……

    Absoultely shocking perfomance with a string of poor decisions against both teams with Blues taking the brunt of them. Hopefully we won’t be subjected to his incompetence again this season.
