Man in the middle | Robert Jones

8th September
First team

Robert Jones will be the man in the middle when Swansea City face Preston North End in Saturday’s Championship opener at Deepdale (3pm).

Merseyside official Jones took charge of the Swans twice last season, having the whistle for the win over Cardiff and the draw against West Brom at the Liberty Stadium.

His only other previous Swansea game was the Carabao Cup clash with MK Dons in 2017, which the Swans won 4-1.

Jones, who has refereed in the Championship since 2017, will be assisted by Adrian Holmes and James Mainwaring. Richard Wild is the fourth official.
