Davies appointed referee for Swans v Birmingham

Hampshire official Andy Davies will take charge of the Swans last game before the international break, when Birmingham City visit the Swansea dot com stadium this weekend.

This will be his fourth Swansea game this season, having officiated the three away games at Coventry, Middlesbrough and more recently Queens Park Rangers, where he sent off Flynn Downes.

Assisting referee Davies will be Graham Kane and Adam Crysell, with Tom Reeves the fourth Official for the game.

His record when officiating Swansea games on the whole makes for positive reading, with just one defeat in four games in SA1.

Andy Davies EFL Championship Record

This will be Davies 20th Championship appearance this season and thus far, he has brandished 59 yellow cards and 2 red cards.

Like the Swans, the official has also taken charge of three Birmingham games, the away draws at Stoke and Preston, as well as the home defeat to Bournemouth.

In the three Birmingham games, he has only issued two yellow cards to Kristian Pedersen and Teden Mengi respectively.

His three Swansea games have resulted in six yellow cards for Korey Smith, Ben Cabango, Michael Obafemi, Jamie Paterson, Ryan Bennett and Flynn Downes, with Downes also being shown a red card – for two bookable offences against QPR in January.
