Attwell in the middle at Leicester

Written by Tom Easterby

Stuart Attwell has been confirmed as the referee for Newcastle United’s Premier League game at Leicester City on Saturday (3pm kick-off).

It will be the fourth time the 35-year-old has taken charge of a game involving the Magpies this season, with two of those – the home games against Stoke City and Crystal Palace – ending in victories for Newcastle. Attwell also refereed the 1-0 defeat at Arsenal in December.

The Nuneaton-born official has also overseen a Leicester win this term, when he was the man in the middle of their 2-0 Carabao Cup win over Liverpool in September.

So far this season, Attwell has taken charge of a total of 26 fixtures across the Premier League, the Championship, Carabao Cup, FA Cup and Checkatrade Trophy.

In those games, he has issued 89 yellow cards – including six in United’s win over Palace in October – and three reds, two of which were given to Ruben Neves and Matt Docherty in Wolves’ 2-1 win over Middlesbrough last week.

Attwell will be assisted by Stuart Burt and Adrian Holmes at the King Power Stadium on Saturday, while Lee Mason will be the fourth official.
