Saturday’s Sky Bet League One game against Bury will be refereed by Gavin Ward, who was in charge when Blues faced Brighton & Hove Albion in pre-season and against Charlton at The Valley in September.
Coincidentally, Ward was also referee when Blues beat Lee Clark’s Bury 1-0 on the last day of the season 16/17 season.
So far this season Ward has brandished 44 yellow cards and 1 red cards in 13 games.
On Tuesday night, the man from Surrey was involved in Stevenage’s Sky Bet League Two game with Accrington Stanley, in which just two yellows were shown. In fact, his last three games were all in League Two.
