Martin Atkinson Refs Stoke Match

Last updated : 26 December 2009 By Brian Cartlidge

Blues have already had the pleasure of the West Yorkshire-based official refereeing one of their games so far this season as Martin Atkinson was the man in the middle for our home match against Sunderlandl on 24th October. Barry Ferguson, Gary McSheffrey and Roger Johnson were all booked in our 2-1 win at St Andrews on that occasion.

In total, Martin Atkinson has taken charge of 21 games so far this season in which he has handed out a whopping 87 yellow cards but no reds.

David Richardson and Phil Sharp will be Martin Atkinson's assistants for the Premier League game at The Britannia Stadium on Monday afternoon.
