Martin Atkinson will take charge of Watford’s Premier League meeting with Fulham on Saturday.

Watford travel to Craven Cottage for the early kick-off looking to get back to winning ways after seeing their perfect start to the season ended by Manchester United last time out.

The Hornets will have to go against recent history under Atkinson’s watch if they are to do so after struggling with him in charge in 2017/18.

Atkinson refereed three Watford games last season, with the Hornets losing 3-0 and 2-1 to Arsenal and Swansea City respectively and drawing 1-1 at home to Tottenham Hotspur.

Watford’s most recent win with Atkinson as the man in the middle came way back in September 2016 as they beat West Ham United 4-2.

This season has seen Atkinson take charge of five Premier League games, showing 18 yellow cards and he is yet to dismiss a player.

He brandished 118 yellows and five reds in 33 games across all competitions in the 2017/18 campaign.
