Gavin Ward from Surrey will take charge of the Battle of the Hoops on Tuesday as Queens Park Rangers travel to Reading.

Having run the line during his early career, Mr Ward joined the National List of Referees in 2007, and has refereed six Championship games to date.

He caused controversy earlier this season by abandoning Plymouth v Barnsley with the Tykes 4-1 up at Home Park - citing player safety as the reason for calling the players off.

This weekend will mark his first QPR fixture as well as his first Reading game as both sides enter the unknown with an inexperienced official.

At the Madejski Stadium he will be assisted by Kevin Johnson (Somerset) and Simon Knapp (S Gloucestershire), with the fourth official Mick Russell (Hertfordshire).

Thus far this season Mr Ward has taken charge of 25 games this season, dishing out 92 yellows and four reds - giving him an average of 3.84 cards per game.
