The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Birmingham City and Queens Park Rangers this Saturday.

Birmingham City host Queens Park Rangers on Saturday December 16 for the game at St Andrew’s Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Michael Jones
Assistant Refs: Derek Eaton and Neil Davies
Fourth Official: Darren Handley

Match Day referee Jones has officiated 13 games in 2017/18, with a return of 49 yellow cards and one red card so far.

He took in 30 games in 2016/17, with a return of 120 yellow cards and five red cards.

That season his highest card count was seven yellows and one red in the Accrington v Morecambe game. He also showed eight yellows and one red in the game Sheffield United and Scunthorpe United.

He took in 40 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 131 yellow cards and three red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Crystal Palace and Bournemouth on February 2 with a total of seven yellow cards shown. Seven were also shown between Crystal Palace and Bournemouth on February 2.

Let`s hope it`s not another repeat and more of the players edge closer to automatic bans.
