Saturday's Referee v Bristol City

Saturday's Referee v Bristol City

The Referee for Saturday's League one match between Rotherham United and Bristol City will be Premiership Ref Mr Peter Walton from Long Buckby, Northants.

Mr Walton has been on the National list of Referees since 1998-99 and is currently in his 4th season on the select list for Premiership Refs.

Hopefully what will be an omen for us at the weekend is the fact that he has officiated at 11 previous Millers games and we've lost just once.
The full list is....
11th March 2006 Blackpool 0 Millers 0..2 Yellows
(Martin Butler sent off for violent conduct)
29th August 2005 Oldham 0 Millers 1..2 Yellows
1st May 2004 Millers 3 Burnley 0..2 yellows
24th February 2004 Millwall 2 Millers 1..2 Yellows
18th October 2003 Palace 1 Millers 1..5 Yellows
(Mike Pollitt sent off deliberate handball)
9th August 2003 Millers 0 Cardiff 0..2 Yellows
27th October 2001 Millers 3 Wimbledon 2..2 Yellows
18th August 2000 Colchester 0 Millers 1..3 Yellows
15th December 1998 Millers 4 Rochdale 0..4 Yellows
(ex-Miller Mark Monington sent off for illegal use of elbow on Lee Glover)
5th December 1998 Rochdale 0 Millers 0..0 cards
29th August 1998 Cardiff 0 Millers 1..4 Yellows

Total P 11 W 6 D 4 L 1 GOALS 15-5
28 Yellows..3 Reds

This season, Peter Walton has took charge of 18 games, booked 49 players and sent off just 1 (Lee Bullen..Sheff Wednesday at Preston on Opening day.)

His complete record since 1998 is....

Games 302 Yellows 855 (2.83 per game) Reds 53

He will be assisted on Saturday by,
Nigel Bannister from Yorkshire
Andy Halliday from Yorkshire

4th Official will be,
Craig Evans from Lincolnshire
