Phil Dowd refs Hammers cup tie

Last updated : 08 January 2011 By Brian Cartlidge

Blues have already had the pleasure of the Staffordshire-based official refereeing one of their games so far this season as Phil Dowd was the man in the middle for our Premier League home game against Everton on 2nd October 2010. No Blues players were booked in our 2-0 defeat at St Andrews on that occasion.

In total, Phil Dowd has taken charge of 20 games so far this season in which he has handed out 72 yellow cards and 6 reds.

Darren Cann and Simon Long will be Phil Dowds' assistants for the game at Upton Park on Tuesday evening.
