Our home game against Bournemouth tomorrow will be refereed by David Coote who will be refereeing a Burnley game for the first time since our 3-0 home win against Blackburn Rovers last season.

It’s some time since Coote first refereed a Burnley game. We have to go back to the 3-3 home draw against Sheffield Wednesday which proved to be Eddie Howe’s final home game as Burnley manager. Coote refereed again by the end of the season and again it was a 3-3 draw, this time at Watford, the home of new manager Sean Dyche.

There were three more games in the Championship before he refereed us in the Premier League which came at Fulham early in the 2018/19 season. That total of Premier League games has now reached ten, the last of which was the 3-1 loss at home to Aston Villa in the penultimate home game of the 2021/22 season. Since, he’s just had that home game against Blackburn.

His performances have been mixed when he’s taken charge of Burnley games with the worst probably being the first home game of the 2015/16 season against Birmingham when he had something of a nightmare. That’s reflected in his twelfth place in RATE THE REF with a rating of 61.65 out of a hundred.

He and fellow Football League referee Darren Deadman were suspended just as the 2017/18 season kicked off for what was reported as unconnected situations. Deadman was sacked and never refereed again but Coote returned in late September and by the end of the season had been allocated his first Premier League game between Newcastle and West Brom.

One game has now reached three figures with the Spurs v Brentford game on the last day of January becoming his one hundredth Premier League game. With one more since, today will be his 102nd.

Eleven of his seventeen games this season have been in the Premier League with three in the Championship, two in the FA Cup and one League Cup game. In those seventeen games he’s shown 81 yellow and three red cards. Home team players have received 33 of those yellow cards with 48 going to away team players.

Back in August, he sent off Arsenal’s Takehiro Tomiyasu in their 1-0 win at Crystal Palace. In December, he showed ten yellow cards and two straight reds in Aston Villa’s 2-1 win at Brentford. Former Burnley captain Ben Mee was first to go with Brentford leading 1-0 but when he dismissed Villa’s Boubacar Kamara, the game had turned in Villa’s favour. The only previous occasion he’d carded Mee was in that shocking home game against Birmingham in 2015.

His most recent game was at Chelsea in midweek for their 3-2 FA Cup win against Leeds. Chelsea had all of Trevoh Chalobah, Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo carded alongside Junior Firpo for Leeds.

The fourth official and VAR today have refereed our two most recent home games. Darren Bond is on the touchline and he refereed our 2-2 home draw against Fulham. On VAR is Jarred Gillett who was referee for the 5-0 home defeat against Arsenal.
