Mike Dean Refs Man City Game

Blues have yet to have the pleasure of the Wirral-based official taking charge of any of their games so far this season although Mr Dean did referee one of our games last season.

Mike Dean was the referee in charge of Blues' FA Cup 3rd Round homne tie against Newcastle in January this year. No Blues players were booked during the 2-2 draw at St Andrew's on that day.

In total Mike Dean has taken charge of 9 games so far this season in which he has handed out a massive 51 yellow cards and 5 reds!

Roy Martin and Trevor Massey will be Mike Dean's assistants for the game at Eastlands on Saturday afternoon.
