James Linington will be the man in the middle when Swansea City face Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Tuesday night (7.45pm).

The Isle of Wight official is taking charge of the Swans for the first time this season.

Last term he oversaw the draw at Millwall, plus a home win over Wigan and a defeat to Nottingham Forest.

Linington, who has over a decade of experience in the EFL, also took charge of four Swans games in the 2018-19 campaign, including wins over Preston and Stoke.

He will be assisted by Daniel Leach and Lee Venamore, while Keith Stroud will be the fourth official.
