Match Day referee Jones has officiated 18 games in 2017/18, with a return of 67 yellow cards and two red cards so far.

He took in 30 games in 2016/17, with a return of 120 yellow cards and five red cards.

That season his highest card count was seven yellows and one red in the Accrington v Morecambe game. He also showed eight yellows and one red in the game Sheffield United and Scunthorpe United.

He took in 40 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 131 yellow cards and three red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Crystal Palace and Bournemouth on February 2 with a total of seven yellow cards shown. Seven were also shown between Crystal Palace and Bournemouth on February 2.

Let`s hope it`s not another repeat and more of the players edge closer to automatic bans.
