Rob Styles to be “rested”

I hear everyone’s favourite referee Rob Styles is to be “rested” this weekend following a series of bizarre decisions.

In his last three games he has awarded teams penalties soon after sending off one of their players, most recently last weekend for Birmingham following Franck Quedrue’s red card against Manchester City.

Styles also sent-off Darren Huckerby in injury time during the East Anglian Derby last November, although few could argue with that decision.

I’m all for the “Respect for Referees” campaign, and I think this sort of action by Keith Hackett can only make their case stronger.
