Card Happy Ref In Charge Tonight At WHL
By Wes Handerley
Updated Wednesday, 21st March 2012
The referee for tonight's game at Tottenham is Mike Jones of Chester.
Those that are thinking ‘I know him’ should do, because he was dropped from refereeing Premiership games at one time for a short period after he let a goal stand for Sunderland against Liverpool after the ball had hit a beach ball on its way.
Closer to home, Jones was in charge of the game at Crawley Town earlier this season when he wrongly sent off Rory Delap (Who had the card rescinded).
The referee is no stranger to Stoke and he is always willing to show a card or three if he feels like it.
He was in charge of the defeat at Swansea (booked eight) then the defeat at home to QPR (booked six). Then the defeat at Manchester United (booked four) and then Crawley away when he booked three and sent one off.
Jones has been in charge of 24 games in all competitions this season and he has shown 93 yellow cards and 8 red.
Best take a calculator tonight.
