His rating for that game was 79.64 and that's good enough to currently see him in seventh place in our Rate the Ref Table. He gave us a penalty that afternoon, but that was no surprise. It was his fifth Turf Moor game and the fourth penalty he had given us in those games.
The Coventry game of two seasons ago was his first Burnley away game and he was heavily criticised for allowing himself to be dictated to throughout the afternoon by Coventry midfielder Dennis Wise. Mind you he's not the first referee to fall for that.
Ilderton joined the league list in 2002 and other than last season he's not been a prolific user of his cards. In 19 games this season he's handed out 39 yellow cards and two red cards. The two players he's sent off are Watford's Lee Williamson in a 3-1 win at Scunthorpe and Chris Lane of Altrincham as they went out of the FA Cup at home to Millwall.
The yellow cards have been evenly handed out with 19 of them going to home team players and 20 to away team players. The most yellow cards in a game has been five plus the red in that Scunthorpe v Watford game whilst he's kept his cards firmly in his pocket in four of the games.
He's not a referee that has caused us any undue problems - and any referee giving Burnley four penalties in six games can't be too bad. And the good news is that there will be no sign of Wise today at the Ricoh.
He will be assisted by Paul Thompson (Derbyshire) and Mark Weaver (West Midlands) with fourth official duties in the hands of James Cox (Worcestershire).
