Andy Madley will referee our FA Cup tie tomorrow at Fulham, the second time he will referee us this season and also the second time he will referee a game against Fulham.

His one previous Burnley game this season was the League Cup tie against Manchester City in September and we have to go back to the 3-1 home win against Fulham in November 2015 for his previous game against tomorrow’s opponents.

The incident that always sticks out in my mind with this referee is the penalty he gave Derby at Pride Park back in the 2013/14. He incredibly adjudged that Jason Shackell (then with us) had fouled when even at the other end of the ground you could see he’d played the ball. They didn’t score from the spot kick and Shackell scored our last goal in a 3-0 win so it didn’t prove costly. Overall though he’s been average in Burnley games with no game really standing out as a shocker.

Although a member of the Select Group, he’s refereed just seven Premier League games this season out of 16 games in total. In those games there have been 39 yellow and one red card. Of those yellow cards, 19 have gone to home team player and twenty to away team players.

The one red card came in his most recent game, the Premier League fixture between Sheffield United and Newcastle that gave the Blades their only win to date this season. They came off best in the card count too despite having both David McGoldrick and Billy Sharp yellow carded. Newcastle more than matched that will all of Karl Darlow, Fabian Schär, Isaac Hayden and Ryan Fraser getting yellow cards and Fraser picking up a second and a red card right on half time. He’d no option with that red card with the press in the North East suggesting Fraser isn’t up for the battle and their reporter with the Newcastle Chronicle wrote of Fraser’s challenge: “It has echoes of Mike Williamson and Daryl Janmaat at Leicester when the pair were sent off and later accused of being dismissed “on purpose” by then coach John Carver.”

Simon Hooper will be the fourth official. His last Burnley game was when he refereed our win at Crystal Palace at the end of June while Chris Kavanagh, who refereed us at West Ham last Saturday, is on VAR duty.
