Nigel in the Middle

NIGEL Miller will be the referee for Argyle’s Sky Bet League 2 play-off semi-final second leg against Wycombe Wanderers on Thursday.

Miller, 55, has taken charge of seven games concerning the Greens, beginning with a 3-2 defeat to Stoke City in 2007. Argyle played away from home in six of those matches, with the only home fixture being a 2-1 victory over Watford in March of 2009, awarding a penalty that Paul Gallagher converted against Brendan Rodgers’ side. He also watched from the middle as Argyle took home all three points from trips to Coventry in 2008 and Chesterfield in 2013.
Nigel’s last game involving the Pilgrims was their 1-0 loss to Accrington Stanley earlier this season – one of eight League 2 games Miller has officiated this season, handing out 15 yellow cards and no red cards. He has mostly been deployed as a referee for Championship games this season, though, averaging 2.5 cards a game over 14 matches.
