Man in the middle | Dean Whitestone

Dean Whitestone

Dean Whitestone will be the man in the middle when Swansea City host Middlesbrough at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday (3pm).

The Northamptonshire official refereed the win over Preston in August, which was his first Swans match since a 2-0 win at Bristol City in 2011.

Whitestone – who had the whistle for last season’s EFL Trophy final - has taken charge of five games at the Liberty, with Swansea losing just one of those.

He will be assisted by Steven Meredith and Andrew Fox, while Richard Hulme will be the fourth official.
