NPower Championship
Birmingham City v Sheff Wednesday
David Avent and Robert Merchant
Fourth Official Geoff Law
Referee Stuart Attwell will take charge of Tuesdays nPower Championship game between Blues and Sheffield Wednesday
The Lancashire official has officiated Blues three times previously. A full account of his stats vs Blues can be found on the forum

Attwell made a prominent debut in 2008 as the youngest person ever to referee in the Premier League, however Attwell and one of his assistants, Nigel Bannister, were heavily censured for a decision to award an early goal to Reading in a Championship game at Watford on 20 September 2008. Bannister flagged for a goal instead of a corner kick after Watford’s John Eustace played the ball over the byline – four yards wide of the goal post – before Reading’s Noel Hunt hooked it back into play. Attwell awarded Reading a goal. The incident, dubbed in the media as a “ghost goal”, led to both Attwell and Bannister being dropped from their duties the following weekend. In February 2012, Attwell was demoted from the list of Select Group Referees and returned to Football League duty on the National List. The move was said to come by mutual consent. The last time he reffed Blues was earlier this season when Mick McCarthys new charges came to St Andrews and beat us 1-0.

This Season Attwell has officiated in 31 games, and given out 86 yellow cards and 2 reds, both players sent off played for the away side. This season 3 penalties have been scored in his matches, 1 home 2 x away

His last game officiating Sheffield Wednesday was a 1-0 away win at Barnsley in December 2012 and prior to that a 2-2 draw vs Newcastle #bcfc
