The referee for this weekend's Barclays Premier League fixture against Sunderland has been announced.

Graham Scott from Oxfordshire, will be the man-in-the-middle for the game at the Stadium of Light and this will be his first Premier League match of the season.

Scott was promoted to the Select Group list of referees ahead of the 2015/16 season and has only officiated one Premier League match previously, which was the 1-1 draw between Burnley and Aston Villa in November 2014.

The Oxfordshire official refereed the Hornets once last season, as he took charge of the 1-0 defeat to Wolves on Boxing Day, at Vicarage Road.

He has refereed seven matches this season, four of which coming in the Championship, and has handed out 31 yellow cards.
