First team

James Linington will be the man in the middle when Swansea City face West Bromwich Albion at the Liberty on Wednesday night (7.45pm).

The Isle of Wight official has already taken charge of the Swans once this season, having been to SA1 for the 1-0 win over Preston back in August.

Linington also refereed the Swans’ League Cup defeat at Hull in 2015, as well as a 4-1 Championship victory over Ipswich back in 2011.

Linington, who has been a Football League referee for a decade, will be assisted on Wednesday by Mark Russell and Dean Treleaven, while Adam Matthews will be the fourth official.
