Referee Sam Allison on Saturday
at 16:16 11 Apr 2024

Saturday’s referee is recently-appointed Premier League official Sam Allison from Wiltshire, who has shown 111 yellow cards and one red in 31 games so far this season.

On Boxing Day, Allison became the first black referee to take control of a Premier League match in 15 years when he took charge of the Sheffield United-Luton match which ended 3-2 to the Hatters.

Allison’s last Town match was the 2-1 home victory over Sunderland at Portman Road in January in which he booked Harry Clarke, Wes Burns, George Edmundson, Jack Taylor and two Black Cats.

Before that he was in charge of the 2-2 draw at Portsmouth in December 2022 in which he yellow-carded only Cameron Burgess and Pompey’s Marlon Pack.

His only previous Town match was the 2-1 home victory over Fleetwood at Portman Road in October 2021 in which he booked Morsy, Bersant Celina and three of the visitors.

Pretty stretched, but players making themselves available. Still only Wes, George, Janoi unavailable, but still some physical and illness issues around the camp, but players still making themselves available and will put in a really energetic performance on Wednesday.

Sam Barrott Wednesday's ref
at 17:04 8 Apr 2024

Fifth time we've had him this season, so another that probably ought to get his own song. Edit, missed the earlier thread on this, but more detail on his previous games.

https://www.soccerbase.com/referees/referee.sd?referee_id=2495

Wednesday’s referee is Sam Barrott, who has shown 112 yellow cards and three red in 36 games so far this season.

The West Riding-based official will be taking charge of his fifth game this season with his most recent the 4-0 win at Millwall on St Valentine’s Day when he awarded the Blues a late penalty after Ali Al-Hamadi was felled by Murray Wallace that the Iraqi international converted, his first goal for the Blues. Barrott also also yellow-carded Leif Davis and three Lions.

Prior to that, Barrott refereed the 1-1 Boxing Day draw at home to Leicester in which he booked Marcus Harness and two Foxes.

He was also the man in the middle for the 3-2 Carabao Cup victory at home to Wolves in September in which he yellow-carded Elkan Baggott, Lee Evans, Sone Aluko and three of the Premier League side.

Barrott also took charge of the opening Championship fixture at Sunderland, which they won 2-1, in which he dismissed Black Cats right-back Trai Hume for two bookable offences and yellow-carded Morsy, Hladky, Burns and one Wearsider.

Last season, Barrott was a late replacement for the 6-0 thrashing of Charlton in April last year after it had emerged that the official originally slated for the game, James Bell, was a fan of Sheffield Wednesday, who at the time were vying with the Blues for League One promotion.

He showed yellow cards to Davis and four to Addicks, two to Ryan Inness, who was then issued with a red with two minutes left on the clock, his fourth dismissal of the season and fifth in just over a year.

Barrott previously took charge of the 1-1 draw at Cambridge two months earlier in which he awarded the U’s a penalty after Edmundson had clumsily felled Conor McGrandles, which Christian Walton saved. Barrott also booked Edmundson, Morsy and two home players.

He was also the man in the middle for the opening game of last season, the home game with Bolton Wanderers, which also ended 1-1, and in which he gave the Trotters a penalty, which was converted by Aaron Morley, after debutant Davis had tripped Conor Bradley. Evans, Woolfenden and two visitors were booked.

Barrott was also in charge of McKenna’s first match as Town boss, the 1-0 home victory over Wycombe Wanderers at Portman Road in December 2021 in which he booked Morsy, Joe Pigott, Matt Penney and one Chairboy.

Kieffer - pretty severe back spasm, not able to do anything thus far. Knowing Kieffer, not given up on some involvement, but at the moment doubtful. Nothing long-term.

Saturday's referee
at 11:49 3 Apr 2024

Saturday’s referee is Matthew Donohue from Manchester, who has shown 135 yellow cards and two red in 29 games so far this season.

Donohue has refereed three previous Town matches in which the Blues are unbeaten, the most recent the 3-1 FA Cup victory at AFC Wimbledon in January in which he red-carded Wombles midfielder Harry Pell for a second bookable offence and also cautioned Tuanzebe, Marcus Harness, George Edmundson and one other Dons player.

He was also in charge of the 3-0 home victory over Hull City in October in which he - unusually judging by his overall stats - kept his cards in his pocked throughout.

Prior to that, Donohue refereed the 1-1 draw at Morecambe in February 2022 in which he booked only Macauley Bonne and Tyreeq Bakinson.

Stuart Attwell reffing Friday
at 16:55 26 Mar 2024

Celebrate every corner as if it went in. Last time he reffed us gave Bristol City a dodgy penalty, so owes us one.


Bristol City 2-0 Ipswich Town - Match Report 3rd Dec 2016 17:13
A controversial Lee Tomlin penalty and a goal of the season contender from Luke Freeman saw Bristol City to a 2-0 victory over the Blues at Ashton Gate. Tomlin converted from the spot after Bartosz Bialkowski had been adjudged to have fouled Tammy Abraham in the 31st minute, then Freeman smashed home a volley on 72 to seal the three points with David McGoldrick having come closest for Town when he hit the post earlier in the second half. 134

Removed it given some of the comments speculating on the ongoing case and one or two other aspects of recent stories and rumours. Think it is best avoided, despite the court appearance.
