Blues are yet to have had the pleasure of the Wirral-based official refereeing any of their games so far this season.
The last time Mike Dean took charge of a Blues game was in our Premier League away match against West Ham on 10th February 2010. Scott Dann and Lee Bowyer both received yellow cards in our 2-0 defeat at Upton Park on that occasion.
In total, Mike Dean has taken charge of 25 games so far this season in which he has handed out 93 yellow cards and 4 reds
Ceri Richards and Peter Kirkup will be Mike Dean's assistants for the cup tie at St Andrews on Saturday afternoon.
