First team

Darren Bond will be the man in the middle when Swansea City face Luton Town at Kenilworth Road on Saturday (12.15pm).

Lancashire official Bond has been refereeing in the Football League since 2012-13, and took charge of his first Championship fixture in February 2013.

He has taken charge of the Swans on five previous occasions, overseeing this season’s win over Watford, plus victories over Bristol City and Leeds United last term.

He also had the whistle for the Carabao Cup defeat to the Hornets during the 2019-20 campaign, and the defeat at Norwich during the 2018-19 season.

Bond will be assisted by Mark Russell and Robert Hyde, while Andy Woolmer will be the fourth official.
