Andy Madley will be refereeing our game tonight against Leicester and while this will be his third Burnley game this season it will be his first in the Premier League and only his second ever Burnley game in this league.

It will just his ninth Burnley game in total with his two previous games this season both ending in 3-0 wins for the away team, Manchester City at Burnley in the League Cup followed by Burnley at Fulham in the FA Cup. Last season he refereed the 0-0 draw at Newcastle, the last away game we were able to attend when he had a busy afternoon with his yellow card.

Tonight will be his 21st domestic game of the season, and his 11th in the Premier League. In the previous twenty games there have been 49 yellow cards and just the one red card. Of those yellows, 24 have gone to home team players and 25 to away team players. The one red card came in the game before our cup tie at Fulham when he sent off Newcastle’s Ryan Fraser in their 1-0 defeat at Sheffield United.

He refereed just twice in February and tonight will be his first game in 17 days since taking charge of Fulham’s 2-0 win at Everton. Both teams picked up one yellow card in that game; Everton’s Michael Keane and Josh Onomah of Fulham.

Jon Moss is fourth official tonight. His most recent Burnley game was the home draw against Fulham two weeks ago. Stuart Attwell has become our resident  VAR official and he’s on duty tonight. It’s now over two years since he last refereed us; the 3-1 win at Brighton in February 2019.
