I think he only booked 1 player, rutter, and that was because he had a shot on goal, albeit after the whistle had gone, should have at least booked 2 of theirs, bannan for certain, thought the linesman in front of east stand was poor as well.

He let SW get away with quite a few heavy challenges, especially on Gnonto, but seemed to give free kicks against Gnonto for much lesser challenges.
We might have had a penalty too, Aorfa on Gnonto 2nd half, but there again, I’ve given up expecting to get any penalties because, as we know, another directive by the football league, but secret this time, is that the benefit of the doubt will always be given to any team other than Leeds United.
Not great 4/10.

Kavanagh has overseen 20 games for United, issuing 38 yellows and 2 r@ds so be prepared.
Chris Kavanagh is VAR at Scum today and has just cancelled a Scum goal. They're losing to Brighton 0 - 1
I was going to give him more, but his failure to give yellow cards was plain wrong, also seemed to be behind play a bit and his linesmen were dreadful.
I take it there are completely different rules from this league and the PL ?
6/10 which would have been higher if he had eyes in the back of his head.
I counted 13 fouls & at least 4 that wasn't given.
Leonard was the chief culprit with four hefty challenges on Summerville & Gnonto.
How Emakhl wasn't booked for the challenge on Ampadu late on, god only knows! Hope Ethan is ok for the Hull game.
To be fair, Gnonto was fortunate not to receive a yellow card for his pull back foul.
Chris Kavanagh has already been demoted from the prem, at this rate, he'll be refereeing in League One soon.
A decent 7 for me.
It’s a fine balance I suppose John, the ref can’t win in many ways, but personally I’m not for multiple stoppages in games with yellow cards dished out like sweets.
I do see where you are coming from though.
