It's Friend Against Fulham

Leicestershire-based referee Kevin Friend will be in charge of Newcastle's game against Fulham on Sunday

By Dan King - Newcastle United Club Reporter

Kevin Friend will take charge of Newcastle's Premier League home game against Fulham on Sunday.

It is only the second Magpies match of the season for the Leicestershire-based official, who officiated the 1-0 win over Queens Park Rangers in December.

He has refereed 29 games in all competitions this term, handing out 100 yellow cards and three reds - although only one since August.

Friend was the man in the middle for the 2012 Community Shield, which saw Manchester City triumph 3-2 over Chelsea in a thriller at Villa Park.

On Sunday, Friend will be assisted by Andy Halliday and Simon Bennett, with Craig Pawson the game's fourth official.
