Sam Allison signals a decision

Sam Allison will be the man in charge when Swansea City host Queens Park Rangers at the Stadium on Easter Monday (3pm kick-off).

This will be the fourth time the former firefighter has taken charge of a Swans match, and will mark his second visit to SA1.

His first trip to Swansea was on February 3 for the Swans home defeat to Plymouth Argyle.

Allison also blew the whistle for the away defeat to Leeds United earlier this term, and for a 2-0 win over Wigan Athletic last season.

The man from Chippenham began his journey as a footballer, and was on the books at clubs including Swindon Town, Exeter City, and Bristol City before becoming a referee in non-league in 2011.

He was added to the professional rota in 2020, and impressive performances in the lower leagues saw him promoted to Select Group 2 in the summer of 2023.

On Boxing Day, he made his Premier League debut when he officiated the clash between Luton Town and Sheffield United at Brammall Lane. He took charge of his second top-flight match on March 13 when Bournemouth mounted a dramatic second-half comeback to beat Luton Town. 

On Monday, Allison will be assisted by Mark Pottage and Richard Wild. Ben Atkinson is set to be the fourth official.
