First team

Jeremy Simpson will be the man in the middle when Swansea City face Nottingham Forest at the City Ground on Saturday (3pm).

The Lancashire official has only taken charge of the Swans on one previous occasion, having been the man at the helm when Graham Potter's side won at Sheffield United on the opening day of the season.

Simpson first refereed in the EFL in 2012, getting his first taste of Championship football the following February.

He officiated Forest's 3-1 EFL Cup win over Newcastle, and their 1-0 defeat to Bristol City earlier in the campaign.

He will be assisted by Shaun Hudson and Nigel Lugg, while Lee Collins is the fourth official.
