Stuart Attwell has been confirmed as the man in the middle for Albion's trip to Selhurst Park on Sunday, as they take on their rivals Crystal Palace.

It will be the first time that Attwell has refereed the Seagulls this season, but Albion fans will hope he continues one trend.

In all four games that Attwell has refereed this season the away side has won and kept a clean sheet.

Attwell has proved he does like a card though, having dished out 22 yellows in the four games he has refereed, but he is yet to produce a red.

The man in charge of VAR on Sunday will be Kevin Friend, who was in charge of Albion's 3-0 win away at Newcastle.

However, he did send Yves Bissouma off after VAR recommended he take a look at the pitchside monitor.
