Our weekly feature rating the referee.
Mike Russell was the man in black for the fantastic 1-0 away win at Birmingham, but how was his performance?
Russell came away with a fairly average rating of 4.8, but his female assistant referee was the one who received the plaudits. BfcLuke stated that “That woman linesmen was actually quite good.”
Here are a sample of the reactions to the referees game:
‘A homer I think. also a poor performance.’
‘Missed numerous shirt pullings on our players.’
‘He was a home ref but not the worst I’ve seen. Credit to the female lino though who went about her job well I thought without drawing attention to herself.’
