Steve Bennett The Man in The Middle
The Blackburn Rovers Vs Wigan Athletic game at Ewood Park on Sunday will be refereed by Steve Bennett, who so far this season has refereed in 22 Premier League games and issued 79 yellow cards but surprisingly no reds.
Bennett took charge of Latics first game of the season at West Ham and been the man in the middle on a further three occasions with us winning one, Manchester City at home and losing the other two Arsenal and Manchester United away.
The Orpington official has only been in charge of two Rovers games they were both played at Ewood Park and both ended in 2-0 defeats against Aston Villa and Manchester United.
Bennett has been a Premier League referee since 1999 and FIFA listed since 2001 and he was due to take charge of the Everton Vs Manchester United FA cup semi-final last weekend but had to withdraw due to illness.
Steve Bennett confesses to being a Crystal Palace fan, well someone has too.
