Newbie referee for Wigan visit – Referee
Friday, 23rd Aug 2019 20:08 by Clive Whittingham

Matt Donohue, new to the Championship this season, is the man in the middle on Saturday as QPR host Wigan.

Referee >>> Matt Donohue (Manchester)

Assistants >>> Adrian Waters (Herts) and Darren Blunden (Kent)

Fourth Official >>> Robert Lewis (Shropshire)


First QPR appointment as the main official.


This is Donohue’s second full season on the league list as a referee and he’s started it in prolific form with 20 yellow cards in his four matches so far. That includes seven and a late penalty in Barnsley’s 2-2 draw at home to Charlton last week and eight yellows at Plymouth’s 3-0 opening day win at Crewe. This is his third Championship appointment of the season, as he was also in charge of Hull’s 2-1 home win against Reading. Last season he booked 135 players (3.64) and sent a further seven off in 37 appointments. All of those were in League’s One and Two, and the cup competitions, with the Championship step up only coming this season.
