What did you think to referee Lee Swabey`s performance in the snowy Sky Bet League One match between Peterborough United and Walsall?

In very wintry conditions, referee Lee Swabey performed well. He controlled the game well, his decisions were virtually correct all game and where some referee`s may have ducked out of the conditions and called an end to the game, full credit must go to Swabey for allowing Posh to clear the snow from the touchlines and goal areas.

The pitch underneath the snow was soft after the covers had kept it in perfect condition so there was no real reason to call off the game.

Four yellow cards were shown during the match with just one going to Michael Doughty who had a very good game in midfield for Posh.

What did you think to the referees performance though?

To rate the referee, there are four categories to score the official on:

A. Decision Making (including use of advantage)
B. Consistency
C. Fitness and Positioning
D. Control and Authority

Each category is out of 25 (25 is the top mark).

Rate the referee below. The results will be processed and a League table will be produced showing the results.
