Mike Jones will take charge of Swansea City’s FA Cup fourth-round tie against Notts County at Meadow Lane on Saturday (3pm).

The Cheshire official will be the man in the middle of a Swans fixture for the third time this season, having officiated the stalemate against Southampton on the opening day of the season and the 1-0 loss to Newcastle at the Liberty in September.

Jones plied his trade as a Football League referee for 11 years before he was added to the Select Group in 2008 and began officiating in the Premier League.

He has officiated 18 matches this season across the Premier League, Championship, League One, FA Cup, EFL Cup and the Football League Trophy, issuing 67 bookings and two red cards.

He will be assisted by Adrian Holmes and Daniel Robathan, while Darren England is the fourth official.
