The Men in Black - QPR v Barnsley

The Men in Black - QPR v Barnsley

Tony Harrington will take charge of Queens Park Rangers' Championship clash with Barnsley.

Teams: Queens Park Rangers v Barnsley
Competition: SkyBet Championship
Date: Tuesday 7th March 2017

Assistant: Nigel Lugg (Surrey)
Assistant: Robert Hyde (Essex)
Fourth Official: Nick Kinseley (Essex)

Harrington joined the National List of Referees in 2012 and has now since joined the Select Group 2. This is the fourth time he will take charge of QPR this season - firstly the EFL Cup win over Swindon Town. Rangers needed penalties to overcome their League One opposition. This came before a recent home win over Ipswich Town - Pawel Wszolek's goal edging out the Tractor Boys.

More recently his officiating team managed to miss Conor Washington's goal up at Blackburn. The ball bouncing rather evidently over the line at Ewood Park to deny QPR the lead and ultimately seeing Rovers win the game.

He will be assisted by Nigel Lugg (Surrey) and Robert Hyde (Essex) with Nick Kinseley (Essex) on fourth official duties.

Mr Lugg ran the line in the 1-0 home defeat to Derby County this campaign; Mr Hyde meanwhile assisted in home victories over Norwich City (2-1) and Wigan Athletic (2-1).

Thus far this campaign Harrington has dished out 105 yellow cards in 28 games - bringing down his card average down to 3.75 cards per game. He has also sent off two players this term - Fulham's Michael Madl and Birmingham City's Jonathan Spector.
