Tom's Law on Referees

The Referee in the Colchester Match-A Review:

Steve Bratt-West Midlands

Well now I know why Derby`s Robert Malcolm fell asleep in the middle of the M1!

For the first 20 minutes I thought well, this is an easy first review, and then Bratt awarded a very controversial free kick to Colchester from which they equalised.

After that 5 minutes didn`t pass without a controversial decision. Bratt is one of if not THE worst ref I have seen at the Turf this season; he was so inconsistent, giving one team a free kick one minute then the other team nothing for the same 'foul`.

I seriously think that we would have won this game if we had a decent ref in charge.

The Referee for the QPR match tonight-A Preview:

Kevin Friend-Leicestershire

Tuesday nights referee is Kevin Friend from Leicestershire. So far this season he has refereed 27 games. He has booked 71 players and has shown 8 red cards. This is the 2nd time Kevin has refereed the Clarets this season after refereeing our 2-1 win over Watford in early December.

He has refereed 11 other championship games this term including Charlton`s 2-0 win over PNE, WBA`s 3-3 draw with Cardiff and Colchester`s 3-2 win over WBA.

Kevin became a Football League assistant referee in 2000 and a referee in 2003. He was an assistant referee at the LDV Vans Trophy area final between Bristol City and Cambridge United in 2003 and has also been involved in the divisional Play-Offs as an assistant referee.

He has got good reviews so far this season and hopefully will perform well on Tuesday night.
