Man in the middle | Gavin Ward

5th March
First team

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

The Surrey official is taking charge of the Swans for the third time this season, having overseen the draw with Birmingham and the defeat at Derby.

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 Adam Crysell and Matthew Jones, while Trevor Kettle is the fourth official.
