He received an average rating of 7.30 following the 2-1 defeat away at Milton Keynes Dons last season. Some of the comments can be found below:

Jamesimp: “I thought he had an unfussy game, told players from both teams to get up when they went to ground without reason and kept control. OK so as we know the 2nd goal was probably offside, it’s the referee we’re rating, he does as instructed by his linesman. He was up with play on the edge of the 18-yard box so no fault there.


Long suffering Imp: “His life wasn’t made any easier by the lino on our side of the pitch, it’s a difficult enough job as it is, he needs all the help he can get. The only real complaint was not booking one of theirs for that cynical block in front of the dugouts in the 2nd half. 7/10.”

MaineRoad_96: “Leaving aside their second goal I thought he did ok. Generally, let the game flow. 6.5 (points deducted because the linesman in front of us forgot his flag).”
