Mark Clattenburg refs Villa match

Last updated : 11 January 2011 By Brian Cartlidge

Blues have had the pleasure of the Tyne & Wear-based offical refereeing two of their games already this season.

Mr Clattenburg took charge of our home match against Wigan Athletic on 25th September when Craig Gardner was shown a straight red card whilst Scott Dann and Roger Johnson were both shown yellow cards in the 0-0 draw at St Andrews.

He also refereed our Premier League away game against Stoke City on 9th November. No Blues players were booked in our 3-2 defeat at The Britannia Stadium on that occasion.

In total, Mark Clattenburg has taken charge of 23 games so far this season in which he has handed out 64 yellow cards and 3 reds.

Scott Ledger and Adam Watts will be Mark Clattenburg's assistants for the game at St Andrews on Sunday lunchtime.
