Man in the middle | Paul Tierney

18th March
First team

Paul Tierney will be the man in the middle when Swansea City host Cardiff City in Saturday’s South Wales derby (5.30pm).

Wigan official Tierney – who has extensive Premier League experience – is taking charge of the Swans for the first time since a 3-1 win at QPR in August 2019.

He has officiated in the top-flight since 2014, getting his first taste of the Premier League when overseeing Swansea’s 3-0 win over West Brom in August 2014.

Tierney will be assisted by Simon Long and James Mainwaring, while Michael Salisbury is the fourth official.
