First team

Craig Pawson will take charge of Swansea City's Premier League clash with Crystal Palace at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday (3pm).

South Yorkshire official Pawson will be in control of a Swans fixture for the second time in a matter of weeks having refereed the 2-1 defeat at Stoke earlier this month.

Pawson has taken charge of 18 games so far this season - including a World Cup qualifier between Kosovo and Ukraine - and shown four red cards.

In all, he has refereed 98 Premier League games, issuing 17 red cards and 331 yellows along the way.

He will be assisted this weekend by Lee Betts and Richard West, with Kevin Friend the fourth official.
