Man in the middle | James Linington

15th January
First team

James Linington will be the man in the middle when Swansea City host Wigan Athletic at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday (3pm).

The Isle of Wight official is taking charge of Swansea for the second time this season, having had the whistle for the home defeat to Nottingham Forest in September.

Linington also took charge of four Swans games at the Liberty last season, overseeing wins against Preston and Stoke, a draw against Wigan and defeat against West Brom.

Linington has over a decade of experience in the EFL and will be assisted by Sam Lewis and Mark Pottage.

Timothy Wood is the fourth official.
