Mr Robinson oversees his third QPR game of the season today – his fourth overall. He has established himself this season as a referee who likes a card and that has been borne out in the fixtures he has taken charge of this season.
Thus far this season he has dished out 148 yellow cards in 32 matches – giving him a stunning average of 4.63 cards per game – he has also handed out nine reds to accompany this staggering average.
Against Leeds he will be assisted by Andrew Fox (Warwickshire), Mark Jones (Nottinghamshire) with David Coote (West Yorkshire) on fourth official duties.
Andrew Fox ran the line earlier this season in QPR’s win over Bristol City (1-0) while Mark Jones assisted to Robinson in Rangers home defeat to Wolves earlier this season (1-2) and before that away at Barnsley (2-3).
Fourth official David Coote – of West Yorkshire no less – took charge of defeats at home to Derby County (0-1) and away at Preston (1-2).
