Officials - Birmingham v Leeds (30/12/17)

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

Birmingham City host Leeds United on Saturday December 30 for the game at St Andrew's Stadium and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Tim Robinson
Assistant Refs: Mark Jones and Nigel Lugg
Fourth Official: Geoff Eltringham

Match Day referee Robinson has officiated 26 games in 2017/18, showing 82 yellow cards and nine red cards already.

He took in 44 games in 2016/17 with a return of 185 yellow cards and nine red cards.

That year his highest card count was ten yellows in the game between Portsmouth and Wycombe Wanderers. He also showed nine yellows in the game between Leyton Orient and Exeter City.

He took charge of 43 games in 2015/16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 149 yellow cards and nine red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Yeovil and Carlisle in the FA Cup on January 19 where he showed a remarkable nine yellow cards and two reds.

Robinson was appointed to the EFL Referees List for the start of the 2012/13 season, taking charge of his first game between Southend United and Accrington Stanley. He was the fourth official at Wembley for the League Two Play-Off Final between AFC Wimbledon and Plymouth Argyle in May 2016. As part of the development programme, he represented the PGMOL at the Dallas Cup 2012 and at the Nike Cup in China in 2012.

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