Burton Albion host Birmingham City on Friday October 21 for the game at the Pirelli Stadium and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Tim Robinson
Linesmen: Jonathan Hunt and Matthew McGrath

Match Day referee Robinson has officiated 12 games in 2016/17 with a return of 58 yellow cards and three red cards.

This season his highest card count was nine yellows in the game between Portsmouth and Wycombe Wanderers. He also showed eight yellows and one red in the game between Newcastle and Wolves.

He took charge of 43 games in 2015/16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 149 yellow cards and nine red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Yeovil and Carlisle in the FA Cup on January 19 where he showed a remarkable nine yellow cards and two reds.

Robinson was appointed to the EFL Referees List for the start of the 2012/13 season, taking charge of his first game between Southend United and Accrington Stanley. He was the fourth official at Wembley for the League Two Play-Off Final between AFC Wimbledon and Plymouth Argyle in May 2016. As part of the development programme, he represented the PGMOL at the Dallas Cup 2012 and at the Nike Cup in China in 2012.
