Ref Watch: Wigan Athletic

12 October 2017

Saturday’s game against Wigan Athletic will be refereed by John Busby...

Last season Busby brandished 131 yellow cards and 3 red cards.

Saturday will be Busby’s second game officiating Blues, the one and only other time being the 2-0 win over Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena. That time Busby showed one yellow card which went to a Sky Blues player.

His professional refereeing career began in the National League in 2015 when Lincoln beat Braintree 3-1. Since then, he has gone onto referee as high as League One.

His most recent game was in Essex as Colchester beat Mansfield 2-0 last weekend.

Throughout his two-year refereeing career he has shown 209 yellow cards and 13 red cards.
