Andy Woolmer of Northamptonshire will referee the R's FA Cup fixture against Sheffield United this evening.

The official is a testament to the old adage of if at first you don't succeed, try and try again. Embarking on his refereeing journey at the age of 16 - 20 years later and he qualified for the National List.

Mr Woolmer has emerged as a card merchant in recent seasons dishing out a flurry of cards in the majority of fixtures - no less than in QPR fixtures.

Thus far this season he has taken charge of 13 games, dishing out 31 yellows and one red - making an average of 2.46 cards per game.

Against Sheffield united he will be assisted by Michael McCoy (West Sussex) and Mike George (Norfolk) - the fourth official National List referee Christopher Sarginson (Staffordshire).

Refereeing Rangers

His first fixture refereeing Rangers was against Sheffield Wednesday as the R's were a team looking to avoid the drop under the guidance of then boss John Gregory.

Rangers went one down courtesy of Chris Brunt stabbing the ball home from close range, it hardly graced the occasion where the R's were celebrating the anniversary of their league cup victory.

Rangers then hit back courtesy of a Martin Rowlands spot kick, with Marc Nygaard being tugged in the box. Mr Woolmer produced his yellow card seven times in the fixture, booking Adam Bolder, Lee Cook and Martin Rowlands for the R's.

Gareth Ainsworth's Rangers then hosted Burnley at Loftus Road following the departure of Iain Dowie, and they got off to a positive start at Loftus Road.

Dexter Blackstock opened the scoring for Rangers, placing the ball home form close range - but an incredible strike from Robbie Blake and a second half strike from substitute Alan Mahon secured the Clarets' win.
