Man in the middle | Bristol City (h)

James Linington will be at Madejski Stadium for the second time this season on Saturday...

2 November 2018

The referee this weekend will be Mr James Linington - who knows all about the Royals having watched our last match from the touchline!

The Welsh official was fourth official for our defeat at the Liberty Stadium only last weekend, but his last two Royals games as the man in the middle saw us take on Bolton Wanderers.

Back in March, Linington presided over a 1-1 draw with Wanderers in a nip-and-tuck encounter at Madejski Stadium.

Then he was back to take the whistle here when the Trotters came to town in August, winning 1-0 courtesy of Yanic Wildshut's winner.

In 40 matches last season throughout the EFL, Linington averaged around 3.5 cautions per match, and also brandished the red card five times.

This season he is yet to send a player off, but has averaged at exactly three yellow cards per match in th nine fixtures he has taken charge of so far.
