Last updated : 01 January 2004 By Brian Cartlidge

The Dorset official has so far refereed in 17 games this season, handing out 44 yellow cards and just one red.

Mr Durkin has refereed in just one of Blues' Premiership games this season and that was in the 3-0 home defeat to Arsenal on November 22nd when midfielder Aliou Cisse collected his fourth booking of the season.

The last Blackburn game Mr Durkin officiated was in their 2-1 win at Portsmouth on 20th September when three Rovers players were cautioned.
