Man in the middle | QPR (h)

Andy Davies is the one with the whistle to his lips at the Madejski this week

1 October 2018

The referee for Tuesday night's home fixture will be Mr Andy Davies from Hampshire.

He was last here for a Tuesday night fixture back in February; Sheffield United ran out 3-1 winners at the Madejski with Omar Richards netting in front of the home fans but Billy Sharp's brace sealing victory for the Blades.

And the official was also chosen to preside over our Carabao Cup fixture here a little more than a year ago, when Paul Clement was the victorious manager...of Swansea City! 

He was the man in charge fore Jaap Stam's first ever fixture as Royals boss too - John Swift's goal separating Reading and Preston North End here at the start of the 2016-17 season.

He last watched Rangers in action on the road on Boxing Day last year - QPR scrapping out a goalless draw at Portman Road despite Josh Scowen's 86th minute sending off.

Davies had been the man in the middle for Ipswich's trip to Loftus Road that same season too - on that occasion Rangers ran out 2-1 victors with former Royal Jamie Mackie on target.

Before this weekend's set of fixtures, he has produced 27 yellow cards and one red - North End's Ben Pearson given his marching orders late in a 2-2 draw with Bolton at Deepdale at the start of last month.

Davies will be assisted by Darren Blunden and Geoffrey Russell on Tuesday evening, with Dean Whitestone named as the fourth official.
