Man in the middle: Oliver Langford

18th December 2018
First team

Oliver Langford will be the man in the middle when Swansea City travel to face Hull City on Saturday (5.30pm).

The West Midlands official will take charge of the Swans for the second time this season having previously helmed the 3-2 defeat against Ipswich at the Liberty.

He twice refereed the Swans away from home during the club’s previous stint in the Championship - games which ended in victories at Sheffield Wednesday and Reading.

Langford is in his 10th season as an EFL referee, having made his bow back in 2008.

He will be assisted by Phillip Dermott and Akil Howson, while Geoff Ethrington is the fourth official.
