A referee is due to take charge of his second Championship fixture this season at Vicarage Road tomorrow when Watford will bid to put a dent in Leicester City’s likely return to the Premier League.

The EFL website has announced that Oliver Langford has been appointed to take charge of the clash against the runaway leaders, who head down the M1 with an 11-point cushion at the summit.

The West Midlands official’s previous outing at the home of the Hornets came at the end of September when Valerien Ismael’s men were beaten 3-2 by Middlesbrough.

That fixture is one of 21 league and cup matches Langford has officiated in this season, in which he has shown a total of 69 yellow cards and five reds.

Hristo Karaivanov and Richard Woodward have been appointed assistant referees for the 3pm kick-off, with Carl Brook on fourth official duties.
