Referee Watch in Association With EZE Group – Roger East

Barring any late changes, Roger East of Wiltshire will be in the middle for Blues’ Championship game against Ipswich Town at St Andrews on Tuesday. Here is a look at his stats.

Season Performance

Mr East has taken charge of one game so far this season, showing six yellow cards. Last season, Mr East took charge of twenty-nine games last season, showing one hundred and one yellow cards and two reds. Of those games last season, twelve were in the Championship and in those matches Mr East handed out forty-two cautions.

Last Blues Game Refereed

The last game involving Blues that Mr East officiated in was the 1-0 away defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion in January. In that game, Mr East booked six players – Keith Andrews, Rohan Ince and Andrea Orlandi of Brighton along with Hayden Mullins, Callum Reilly and Olly Lee of Blues. Colin Tattum noted that barring a contentious throw in prior to the only goal of the game, Mr East had officiated well.

Last Championship Game Refereed

The last game at this level that Mr East was in the middle for was the Championship playoff game between Brighton and Derby at the Amex, which finished 2-1 to the visitors. In that game Mr East booked seven players – Inigo Calderon, Keith Andrews and Jake Forster-Caskey of Brighton along with Craig Forsyth, Jamie Ward, George Thorne and Conor Sammon of Derby.

Suspension Watch

1 Yellow Card: Neal Eardley, David Davis

The last date that five yellow cards will attract a suspension is December 31; for ten yellow cards it is April 12.

    Clark has a decision to make for Tuesday; does he retain Cotterill and Novak to play narrow in midfield to promote defensive stability, or does he play two wingers to promote attacking creativity?

    • mark says:

      hopefully both players who took a knock on Saturday will be available to Clark?.
      Clark wants to play high tempo game carrying no passengers…….so imo i would be seeking attacking play against the tractor boys………….this what the home supporters want…..kro

    • Raymondo says:

      I think that playing Cotterill and Duffy would worry most defences in this division . Cotterill because he is a two footed player with a good shot in either foot and can turn most defenders and Duffy because of his sudden acceleration over a short distance and he has the knack to shoot from behind a defender to disguise his shot, as he did against Cambridge. If the goalkeeper doesn’t see the initial shot he won’t be quick enough to react to it. Let’s play them together.

    another ref happy to pull the card out as long as it ipswich players lol

  • mark says:

    to all you blues fans come on support your team pack out the stans, lets make some noise……lets bring the temp of noise to the stans, we are capital of Birmingham……let this ref here our voices…..roar to a second win at home…………….

  • Chris W says:

    A ref who seems to average 6 cards per game, though he only issued two reds last season.
    Hopefully we can go with the same XI against Ipswich, if not it would be worth playing both Duffy and Cotterill to give us more width with Donaldson and Novak/Thomas.

    Sky Sports reckon that Lee Clark is looking to bring Bolton player Rob Hall back to the club. I’m not sure I see the point, with Matt Green on his way to fitness.

    • Richard Granfield says:

      Rob Hall is a different type of player to Green. Hall is left sided wide player and the only other left sided players at the club are Robinson, Grounds, Gunning, Reilly and Hancox. Hall could be the left footed winger Clark was talking about earlier in the Window.

    • Raymondo says:

      Apparently we’ve recalled Amari’i Bell from Mansfield and signed Luke Armstrong on a 1 year deal after a trial period with the under-21s/development squad. Still a teenager, he has impressed on trial. He has been with their Academy side at Middlesbrough and is the son of former Middlesborough and Ipswich forward Alun Armstrong.

      • Staffs Blue says:

        Alun was a cracking striker. I remember him at Stockport more than anywhere else. Apparently, Amari’i was played at centre back alonside Will Packwood. I have a feeling he’s been called to cover left back though, because Grounds will be the cover at centre back. Makes more sense than bringing someone else in and wasting what bit of dosh we have in reserve.

        • Staffs Blue says:

          I can imagine Luke Armstrong and Denny Johnstone forming our strike partnership in the future (if they’re not sold first.)

        • Raymondo says:

          I’m beginning to think, albeit cautiously, that LC is coming of age as a manager, and is learning from his mistakes in the past. As we all do in life. Lets hope so. I seem to remember that Alex Ferguson nearly got the sack in his early days as a manager at Man U. KRO

          • Staffs Blue says:

            I think tonight could be the yardstick Raymondo. If he makes too many changes to the side for any other reason but injury, I don’t think fans will be too pleased tbh. The only tactical change I’d like to see, is Duffy brought in, whether that be for Novak or Thomas. Other than that, keep the side as it was for Brighton.

          • Chris W says:

            Agree completely, the only change, if any, would be for bringing in Duffy, but apparently Davis and Novak are both fit so it should be as we started Saturday.
            I would like to see Duffy introduced at some point tonight if he doesn’t start, certainly be interesting with both him and Cotterill pinging in crosses from both flanks.

          • Staffs Blue says:

            It seems, from seeing him play at different clubs, that Cotterill most often plays on the left, so he can cut inside and let fly. Whether that’s player preference, I don’t know, but I’d play Duffy right and Cotterill left.
