Moss to referee Hull City match

25/10/2016 10:29

Experienced Premier League referee Jon Moss will be the man-in-the-middle for this weekend's game against Hull City at Vicarage Road.

Moss has already refereed the Hornets once this season, which came in Watford's 2-1 defeat to Chelsea in August at the Vic. Etienne Capoue put Walter Mazzarri's men ahead early in the second half through a sumptuous volley, before two Chelsea goals in the final 10 minutes handed Antonio Conte's men all three points. On that day Moss handed out seven yellow cards.

This weekend's game will be Moss's first Premier League match since he controversially sent off Arsenal's Granit Xhaka two weeks ago.

The West Yorkshire based official is a relatively experienced top-flight referee, having taken charge of matches in the Premier League since 2011.

This season Moss has refereed eight games in all competitions, handing out 41 yellow cards and two red.
