Match Day referee Bankes has officiated 22 games in 2017/18, showing 81 yellow cards and four red cards so far.

He took in 38 games in 2016/17 with a return of 127 yellow cards and 12 red cards.

He was most card happy that year in the game between Newcastle United and Norwich City where he showed ten yellow cards. He also showed eight yellows and two reds in the match between Rochdale and Bury.

Let`s hope it`s not another repeat and more of the players edge closer to automatic bans.
