The Men in Black - West Brom v QPR

The Men in Black - West Brom v QPR

Jonathan Moss will take charge of this weekend's encounter as Queens Park Rangers travel to West Bromwich Albion.

Moss from West Yorkshire progressed from the National List of Assistant Referees to the full Referees List in 2005. He was subsequently added to the Select List of Referees, having earned his promotion to the top flight in 2011.

Thus far this season Mr Moss has dished out 105 yellow cards and 11 reds in 30 games - giving him an average of 3.87 cards per game.

He will be assisted by Mr Darren Cann (Norfolk) and Mr Jake Collin (Merseyside), the fourth official is select list referee Mr Neil Swarbrick (Lancashire).

Refereeing Rangers


n 2007/08 Mr Moss oversaw his first Rangers game as Mick Harford's QPR lost out to Colchester United at Layer Road.

Following the sacking of Gregory, Harford dipped into the transfer market to sign Rowan Vine, both he and Hogan Ephraim scored in a 4-2 defeat against the eventually-relegated U's.

The following season QPR entertained Steve Coppell's Reading, a side looking a good bet for a playoff place. In a typically dull affair it ended goalless at Loftus Road.

Later on that season Rangers had the chance to play party poopers as they travelled to Wolverhampton Wanderers, who needed just one more win to secure their place in the Premier League. Sylvan Ebanks-Blake's goal just after half time secured the points and the prize for Wolves who were promoted as champions of the Championship.

He presided over Jim Magilton's Queens Park Rangers as their season took a turn for the worse live on Sky television. Off the back of some thumping form, Rangers were beaten at home by Leicester City with Adel Taarabt's first half goal cancelled out by a Matty Fryatt double.

Following this was QPR's promotion season - however things typically did not go as planned at Norwich City. Rangers had Matt Connolly set off for brushing Grant Holt when clear through on goal, as Russell Martin slammed home the winner for the Canaries.

Once Rangers were back in the top flight, they were in the thick of danger as Mr Moss presided over a crucial home fixture with Wigan Athletic. Rangers went in front courtesy of a Heidar Helguson penalty, while the striker would go on to miss another later in the encounter.

Ákos Buzsáky doubled the advantage before the break with a scintillating free-kick - in off the upright before Hugo Rodallega halved the arrears with a fine set-piece of his own. Tommy Smith settled the encounter as a spectacle when he slammed home a devastating clincher on 81 minutes.
