Friend to referee Swans visit to the Royals

Premier League referee Kevin Friend will officiate Swansea City’s game at Reading on Easter Monday.

It will be the first time that the Leicester based official will have been in charge of a game involving either side this season.

Assisting Friend for the game will be Scott Ledger and Matthew Wilkes, with Declan Bourne the 4th Official for the game at the Select Car Leasing Stadium.

Why not have a look at the previous Swans results when Kevin Friend has been the referee. His record for Swans away games doesn’t make pleasant reading however, with Swansea City winning just 6 games out of a possible 16.

He has dished out 14 yellow cards, no red cards and awarded just one penalty to date.

The last Championship game Friend officiated was West Brom’s one nil win over Fulham on 15 March 2022.
