First team

John Brooks will be the man in the middle when Swansea City host Sheffield United on Saturday evening (5.30pm).

The Leicestershire official has taken charge of the Swans twice during the 2018-19 season, having the whistle for the Carabao Cup defeat to Crystal Palace and the goalless draw at Wigan in the Championship.

He has refereed in the Football League since the start of the 2016-17 season, and has been an assistant referee in the Premier League.

Brooks will be assisted by Adam Crysell and Akil Howson, while Alan Young is the fourth official.
