Marriner will referee Bristol City cup tie
Burnley’s FA Cup 4th round tie against Bristol City tomorrow will be refereed by Andre Marriner and it will be his second visit to Turf Moor this season having already refereed the home Premier League game against Manchester City.
It’s no surprise that he’s been given a Burnley home game; he’s previously refereed us seven times and all but one of them, that horrible 3-0 New Year’s Day defeat at Blackpool in 2008, have been at Turf Moor.
On his most recent visit, for the City game, he missed a clear penalty early in the game when Jeff Hendrick was blatantly pushed in the box but he’s not the only referee to have cost us this season with a poor decision.
Generally, he’s been OK in his Burnley games and that’s reflected in his RATE THE REF position. He’s currently 6th in the table with a rating of 72.77 out of 100.
This season he has refereed 18 domestic games in which there have been 58 yellow cards and just the card. Of the yellows, 27 have gone to home team players and 31 to away team players. The player he sent off was Hull’s Ahmed Elmohamady in their 5-1 defeat at Liverpool in September.
There were six yellow cards in his last game, the Premier League clash between Manchester City and Tottenham last Saturday that ended 2-2. City had both Aleksandar Kolarov and Nicolas Otamendi carded while Kevin Wimmer, Victor Wanyama, Eric Dier and Deli Alli of Spurs all received yellow cards.
The assistant referees are Matthew Wilkes (West Midlands) and Derek Eaton (Gloucestershire). The fourth official is Chris Kavanagh (Lancashire) whose last Burnley game was the 3-1 win at Brentford in January of last year.
