Tim Robinson will referee tonight’s game against Hull City at the MKM Stadium in what will be his third Burnley game this season having previously taken charge of our Championship game at Sunderland and the FA Cup tie at Bournemouth.

He’s refereed us four times overall in the past. He had a nightmare in the first of them against Rotherham in 2016 and three seasons later he was awarded his first ever Premier League game at the Turf when we beat Newcastle 1-0 and came in for a lot of criticism from Steve Bruce.

His performances in the two games this season have been good, and that’s helped him rise to 16th in RATE THE REF with a rating of 54.37 out of a hundred, a big increase from where he stood after the first two games.

Such have been his performances this season, which has brought his second Premier League game, he’s widely being tipped to become a Select Group referee from next season, this from a referee who kicked off his league career in 2012, refereeing Southend v Accrington in League Two.

That second Premier League game came a week last Saturday when he took charge of the Wolves v Spurs game at Molineux. It’s one of 31 games he’s refereed this season which includes 22 in the Championship, one in League One, two in the League Cup and five in the FA Cup.

Those 31 games have seen him reach for his yellow card 118 times and he’s also added six red cards to that total. Of those yellows, 52 have gone to home team players with 66 to away team players. He sent off two players in his first game of the season. He dismissed Cardiff’s Perry Ng and then Norwich’s Grant Hanley in a 1-0 win for Cardiff on the opening day of the season.

The next player to see his red card was Blackburn’s Jake Garrett in a 1-0 loss at Coventry and his most recent red was another Blackburn player; Daniel Ayala was sent off in their 1-1 draw at Bristol City.

He had a busy day with his yellow card in his last game, Sunderland’s 1-0 win at Norwich three days ago. Norwich had both Marcelino Núñez and Teemu Pukki carded while Sunderland saw all of Danny Batth, Trai Hume, Dan Neill, Lyndon Gooch and Pierre Ekwah receiving yellow cards.

Fourth official tonight is Geoff Eltringham. His last Burnley game was our League Cup game against Rochdale in September 2021.
