Chris Kavanagh will take charge of Swansea City’s Emirates FA Cup third-round replay against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Liberty on Wednesday night.

The fixture will mark the first time the Manchester official has been the man in the middle for a Swans match.

Kavanagh made his Premier League debut in April 2017, and has been fourth official in the top flight on a number of occasions.

He has officiated 17 matches in all competitions so far this season, issuing 57 bookings and one red card.

Kavanagh will be assisted by Simon Beck and Simon Bennett, while Andy Davies will be the fourth official.
