He was in charge of two QPR games last season with both games finishing 0-0. He handed out five yellow cards in the draw at Swansea in October and officiated the FA Cup home draw with Burnley in January when he didn`t show a single card.

I can't see him refereeing another 0-0 QPR game, think there will be a few in this.

Could do with him doing us a few favours on Saturday, maybe not spotting the odd handball in the area!
