Peter Bankes will be the man in the middle when Swansea City host Derby County in their final home game of the season on Wednesday night (7.45pm).

The Lancashire official will be taking charge of a Swans fixture for the second time this season, having been at the helm of the Liberty Stadium win over Brentford earlier this month.

Bankes has officiated in the Championship since the 2014-15 campaign.

He found himself in the spotlight earlier this term when he sent off Derby manager Frank Lampard during their game at Rotherham, after the former Chelsea and England midfielder left his technical area to protest a decision.

Bankes will be assisted by Andrew Fox and Mark Jones, while Andy Woolmer is the fourth official.
