Ref Watch: Yeovil Town

28 January 2013

Mick Russell has been appointed as referee for Tuesday's game between MK Dons and Yeovil Town.

Russell is half-way through his ninth season as a Football League referee having taken charge of his first game back in August 2004.

The Hertfordshire-based official has overseen 11 MK Dons games in his career, the first coming in a 1-1 draw against Hull City at the National Hockey Stadium in 2004 and most recently in the Dons’ 2-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers in the first round of the Capital One Cup in August 2012.

Russell has shown a total of 35 yellow cards in the Dons matches he has umpired, 18 of those to Dons players. He also sent off striker Izale McLeod for a dangerous tackle in a 1-0 victory over Boston United in August 2006.

This season, the experienced whistle-blower has refereed 30 games, booking 67 players as well as showing three red cards. His most recent appointment came last weekend, when he was the man in the middle for the goalless draw between Plymouth Argyle and Accrington Stanley.

The full list of officials for the game is as follows:

Referee: Mick Russell (Hertfordshire)
Assistant referees: Adam Bromley (Devon) and Neil Radford (Worcestershire)
