Man in the middle | Peter Bankes

1st January 2020
First team

Peter Bankes will be the man in the middle when Swansea City host Charlton Athletic on Thursday (7.45pm).

It will be the Lancashire official’s third Swans game of the season, but his first at the Liberty.

Bankes had the whistle for the reverse fixture at The Valley – where the Swans won 2-1 – as well as for the victory over Wigan by the same margin at the DW Stadium.

Bankes has officiated in the Championship since the 2014-15 campaign and will be assisted by Derek Eaton and Darren Cann, while Michael Salisbury is the fourth official.
