Man in the middle | Tony Harrington

First team

Tony Harrington will be the man in the middle when Swansea City visit Cardiff City for Sunday’s South Wales derby.

The Cleveland official will be taking charge of a Swans fixture for just the third time in his career.

Harrington previously oversaw the 2-1 defeat at Rotherham last term as the Millers triumphed thanks to two late penalties, as well as the goalless draw at Bristol City earlier this season in which Jake Bidwell was sent off.

Harrington has been refereeing in the Football League since 2012, and he has been a regular in the Championship since 2015-16.

He will be assisted by Timothy Wood and Daniel Leach, while Geoff Eltringham is the fourth official.
