The Premier League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Southampton this Sunday.

Swansea City travel to Southampton on Sunday September 18 for the game at St Mary’s Stadium and the match carries a 2.15pm kick off.

Referee: Mike Jones
Linesmen: R West and M Scholes
Fourth Official: G Scott

Match Day referee Jones has officiated three games in 2016/17, with a return of 15 yellow cards and two red cards.

This season his highest card count was seven yellows and one red in the Accrington v Morecambe game.

He took in 40 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 131 yellow cards and three red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Crystal Palace and Bournemouth on February 2 with a total of seven yellow cards shown. Seven were also shown between Crystal Palace and Bournemouth on February 2.

Let`s hope it`s not another repeat and more of our players edge closer to automatic bans.
