Salisbury gets first QPR gig at Hillsborough - Referee
Wednesday, 30th Sep 2020 15:18 by Clive Whittingham

It's a new referee for us on Saturday as Michael Salisbury steps into the middle for our trip to Hillsborough to face Sheff Wed.

Referee >>> Michael Salisbury (Lancashire)

Assistants >>> Andrew Fox (Warwickshire) and Richard Wild (Rochdale)

Fourth Official >>> Jeremy Simpson (Lancashire)


First QPR appointment.


Salisbury stepped up from the national league list at the end of the 2015/16 season and made his Championship debut last year with two appointments in our league. Strangely they were both at Reading – a 3-0 victory over Derby in which Scott Malone was sent off after four minutes conceding a penalty, and ten players had been yellow carded by the end. He did Reading 1-1 Stoke in lockdown and finished the campaign with the League Two play-off final between Exeter and Northampton which finished with three yellows and a red. Overall his yellow card total was low – 79 in 29 – but ten reds, under one in three games, is high.

So far this season he’s shown six yellows in two games – Boro’s 4-3 League Cup win v Shrewsbury and Wimbledon’s 1-0 League One win at Fleetwood. This is his first appointment with either QPR but he has done Wednesday once before – a 2-0 FA Cup replay win at home to Carlisle in January 2018, no cards shown.
