Match Day referee Swarbrick has officiated 28 games in 2016/17 with a return of 105 yellow cards and three red cards.

His highest card count this season was six yellows and one red in the game between Swindon Town and Bolton Wanderers. He achieved the same in the Hull City and Newcastle United game in the EFL Cup.

He took in 35 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 98 yellow cards and seven red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Sunderland and West Ham on October 3 a total of seven yellows being shown and one red.

Let`s hope it`s not another repeat and more of our players edge closer to automatic bans.
