The EFL have confirmed that Jeremy Simpson will be the man in the middle when Derby County take on West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns on Wednesday afternoon in their latest behind-closed-doors fixture in the Sky Bet Championship (5pm kick-off).

Simpson has overseen 26 games during the 2019/20 season and produced a total of 89 yellow cards and six reds.

His last match in charge of Derby came at the end of December 2019 as the Rams claimed a 2-1 home win over Charlton Athletic, thanks to a brace from Jason Knight. Midfielder Krystian Bielik was sent off that evening for a late challenge on the Addicks' Conor Gallagher early in the first-half.

Simpson will be assisted by Nick Greenhalgh and Robert Hyde on the lines, whilst Ben Toner has been appointed as the fourth official.
