First team

Gavin Ward will be the man in the middle when Swansea City take on Derby County at Pride Park on Wednesday (5.30pm).

The Surrey official is taking charge of the Swans for the second time this season, having overseen the home draw against Birmingham City earlier in the campaign.

He also had the whistle for two Swansea games during the 2019-20 season; defeats against Brentford and Stoke.

Ward – who has officiated in the EFL since 2007 – will be assisted by Shaun Hudson and Mark Pottage, while Leigh Doughty is the fourth official.
