RUFC - Ref Watch v Ipswich Town

RUFC - Ref Watch v Ipswich Town
JEREMY SIMPSON from Lancashire

Becoming like an 'old friend' this will be Jeremy's fifth time in charge of the Millers since December the last time being last month at Molineux. Wolves won the game one-nil with a goal on the stroke of half-time from Andreas Weimann.

In February he was in charge of the one that most Millers want to forget at Cardiff when it was a five-nil win to the Welsh side. Substitutes Aimen Belaid and Anthony Forde were the only players to see yellow that day.

In January Jeremy was in the middle for our game at St James' Park when Newcastle were four-nil winners. Joe Mattock and Richie Smallwood were shown yellow cards that day.

Jeremy was also in charge of the Millers in December when a twenty-fourth minute Izzy Brown goal gave Rotherham a home win over Queens Park Rangers. Lee Frecklington, Anthony Forde and Tom Adeyemi saw yellow for the hosts that day with Rangers getting three yellow cards too.

Last season Jeremy was in charge of the Millers three times, the last one being our goalless draw against Wolves at Molineux.

He was also in the middle for our away game at the Cardiff City Stadium in January with both sides getting a point each. Anthony Pilkington opened the scoring for Cardiff on twenty-five minutes with Joe Newell equalising just before half-time. Pilkington then kindly put the Millers in front with an own goal on forty-nine minutes and scored his 'hat-trick` equalising for his own side on the hour mark. A two-footed challenge on Jonson Clarke-Harris saw Lee Peltier get an early bath after a second yellow card six minutes from time.

Jeremy was also in the middle for our home game in October against Reading at the New York Stadium. Nick Blackman opened the scoring on twenty-six minutes for the visitors but a goal three minutes into the second half from Danny Collins gave the hosts a point from the game. Danny Collins and Harry Toffolo were booked that Tuesday night.

The time before he was in charge of our game at the New Meadow in January 2014. First half goals from Tom Hitchcock, Ben Pringle and James Tavernier gave the Millers a three-nil win and all three points. Hitchcock, Rob Milsom and Mark Bradley saw yellow for Rotherham that day while Jeremy also booked three Shrewsbury players.

Jeremy was at the New York Stadium back in September 2012 when a goal from Alex Revell on thirty-four minutes was the only goal of the game. That day Jeremy booked four players - Ian Sharps, Nicky Hunt and Ben Pringle from the hosts and Torquay's Aaron Downes.

In the thirty-seven games Jeremy has been in the middle for this season he's shown a whopping one hundred and fifty-eight yellow cards and five red cards.

Running the line on Saturday at the New York Stadium will be . . . .
Shaun Hudson from Tyne and Wear
and
Tony Peart from North Yorkshire

The Fourth Official will be
Andrew Madley from West Yorkshire
