David Webb is the man set to be the man in the middle of Blues’ home encounter with Preston North End this Saturday.
Webb is a veteran of Football League refereeing having taken charge of EFL fixtures since 2006. The first record available of David Webb’s time in charge of Birmingham City fixtures is in 2014 when he oversaw Blues’ 3-1 victory at Doncaster Rovers, a Federico Macheda double either side of a Lee Novak finish securing the Blues win.
The County Durham referee has taken charge of 12 Championship games this term, dishing out 31 yellow cards and no red cards unbelievably. He is not immune to big decisions, however, giving penalties to Sheffield Wednesday, Stoke City and Millwall on the road this term.
Webb has yet to take charge of a Blues fixture this season but did watch on as Derby County beat Preston 2-0 back in August. The last time he took charge of a Blues fixture was at Huddersfield Town in April 2016.
Webb will be assisted by Mark Russell & Lee Venamore while Darren England is the fourth official looking to keep the peace between Garry Monk and Alex Neil,
