Match Day referee East has officiated 21 games in 2017/18, showing 71 yellow cards and two red cards.
He took in 33 games in 2016/17 with a return of 140 yellow cards and five red cards.
His highest card that year was eight yellow cards which he showed in matches between Oxford v Millwall, MK Dons v Northampton and Brighton v Ipswich Town.
He took charge of 39 matches in 2015/16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 119 yellow cards and two red cards.
He was most card happy in the match between Brighton and Sheffield Wednesday in May with a total of eight yellows being shown.
Let`s hope it`s not another repeat and more of the players edge closer to automatic bans.
