Match officials named for Sky Sports clash…
ANDREW MADLEY will be the man in charge of Stoke City’s Championship clash with Preston North End at Deepdale on Saturday.
The game will represent Madley’s third Championship outing of the season and his second to be broadcast live by Sky Sports, having taken charge of Aston Villa’s 3-1 win at Hull on the opening weekend of the season.
He was the man in the middle when Middlesbrough beat Birmingham last weekend – a game in which he produced his first red card of the season in dismissing Craig Gardner seven minutes from time. He has issued three yellow cards so far this term.
Madley will be assisted at Deepdale by Steven Meredith and Philip Dermott, while Jeremy Simpson will be the fourth official.
