The man in charge of our game against the Canaries will be …
Mark Brown from East Yorkshire
Mark is in his fifth season as a referee having been promoted in 2010 after seven years on the line after his early days playing and officiating in the Hull Sunday League and has been in the middle for a few Millers games in the past the first time being at Don Valley in February 2011 when Omar Daley and Adam Le Fondre gave the Millers a two-nil win over Accrington Stanley.
This will be Mark’s second visit to the New York Stadium this season, the first being in October when Fulham were in town. . Alex Revell opened the scoring on twenty-eight minutes but five minutes later Lee Frecklington brought down George Williams in the area and Ross McCormack equalised from the resulting spot-kick. Ten minutes into the second half an acrobatic shot from Jonson Clarke-Harris put the Millers back in front only for Cauley Woodrow to level just three minutes later. In the final five minutes of the game a shot from Ben Pringle deflected off Nikolay Boudurov past his own ‘keeper but as the Fourth Official was putting up the board for minutes added on the Millers conceded a corner which was headed in by Dan Burn to give the Cottagers a share of the spoils. The only card shown that night was to Marcus Bettinelli the visitors’ goalkeeper
Mark’s first visit to the New York Stadium was our four-nil win over Bradford City when Gareth Evans scored two goals and Michael O’Connor and Ben Pringle getting the other two goals.
Last season we had him in charge of our goalless game with Carlisle in November when he sent-off Conor Townsend just after the start of the first half for a second yellow card offence.
This season Mark has been in charge of thirty-two games showing sixty-eight yellow cards and six red cards
