He received an average rating of 7.21 following the 4-0 win at home against Southend United in August. Some of the comments can be found below:

Snats: “7.5. Not as good as the first two but still very accomplished. Yes maybe he was too lenient at times but I’d much rather that than a ref who’s flashing the cards left, right and centre.”

Luke Imp: “7.5.

I thought he was decent enough but their left-sided CB should have been carded way earlier than he did. He committed 4 offences that warranted more than a chat.

Also missed a blatant foul on Walker in front of Co-op 6 in the first half where their defender went straight through Walker after he’d nipped in front of him and kicked him yet gave a throw-in.”

Impalex: “Good enough for me I must say. When I think of the crap we have endured over the last eight years or so, it is somewhat refreshing to get a ref who seems to understand the rules. Good use of the ‘play-on’ rule and he booked one of their players for a pretty nasty foul after having played on.

7.5 from me.”
