Referee Scott was assisted by Richard West and Matthew Wilkes, with Oliver Langford the 4th Official for the game.

Name: Graham Scott
DOB: 1968
Birthplace: Oxfordshire

Background:
Scott became a Premier League official during the 2014/15 season, having been on the National List of referees since the start of the 2008/09 season.

Swans related Fact(s):
He is probably best remembered by Swansea fans for his performance during Sunderland’s 4-2 win at the Liberty in January 2016, when he and his assistants manage to miss two offside goals, award a dubious penalty and send off Kyle Naughton.

Bizarrely, the only reason Scott took charge of the game was because he was a last minute replacement due to Andre Marriner withdrawing due to illness.

During the 2018/19 season, he also sent off the Swans Courtney Baker-Richardson after just 5 minutes in the game against Millwall at the Den.

Here are the all important facts and figures for each game that he has been a referee for a Swansea City game:
