He took in 31 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 102 yellow cards and five red cards.
He was most card happy in the match between Fleetwood Town and Wigan on December 28 with nine yellow cards shown.

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