Josh Smith referee

Joshua Smith will be the referee when Swansea City host Preston at the Stadium on Saturday (3pm).

The Bedfordshire official is taking charge of the Swans for just the third time, having had the whistle for the home meeting with Stoke and the trip to take on Fulham earlier in the season.

Smith began refereeing in the EFL during the 2019-20 season, and was promoted to Championship duties last term.

He will be assisted by Sam Lewis and Jonathan Hunt, while Leigh Doughty is the fourth official.
