Kevin Friend has been appointed as the Match Referee for Derby County's Sky Bet Championship fixture at West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday (8pm kick-off).

Premier League official Friend took charge of 31 games in the 2020/21 season, producing a total of 74 yellow cards and three red cards.

He oversaw Derby's 2-0 Emirates FA Cup Third Round tie at Chorley in January of this year, when the Rams were forced to field a team of Academy players under COVID-19 protocol rules.

Friend will be assisted by Derek Eaton and Wade Smith on the lines, whilst Will Finnie has been appointed as the fourth official.
