Blues have already had the pleasure of the South Yorkshire-based official refereeing 4 of their games so far this season whilst Mr Rennie has taken charge of 3 Blackburn games during this campaign.

The last time Uriah Rennie took charge of a Blues game was in our 2-0 home defeat against Tottenham on 18th Mrach. Kenny Cunningham and Nicky Butt were both booked during that game.

Prior to the Tottenham game, Uriah Rennie had refereed in our 1-1 away draw against Liverpool back on 1st February. Damien Johnson was shown a straight red card at Anfield that night.

Uriah Rennie had also refereed our 1-0 home win against Fulham back on 10th December. No Blues players were booked during that game.

He had also taken charge of our 1-0 away win at Sunderland on 26th November and no Blues players were booked on that day either.

The last time Uriah Rennie took charge of a Blackburn fixture was in their 1-0 home win against Arsenal on 25th February. David Bentley, Sergio Peter and Andy Todd were all booked on that occasion.
