Rob Styles Refs Chelsea Game

Last updated : 14 January 2008 By Brian Cartlidge

Blues have already had the pleasure of the Hampshire based official refereeing two of their games so far this season.

The last time Rob Styles took charge of a Blues game was in our 2-1 away defeat at Newcastle United on 8th December 2007. Medhi Nafti and Seb Laarson both picked up a yellow card on that occasion.

Prior to the Newcastle game Mr Styles had refereed our 2-0 away defeat against Middlesbrough on 1st September 2007. Olivier Kapo, Medhi Nafti and Fabrice Muamba were all booked at The Riverside on that occasion.

In total Rob Styles has taken charge of 22 games so far this season in which he has handed out 84 yellow cards and 10 reds.

J Linington and M Murphy will be Rob Styles' assistants for the match at St Andrew's on Saturday afternoon.
