A referee is set to take charge of just his seventh Championship fixture tomorrow when Watford aim to end their six-game run without a league win at Vicarage Road.

The EFL website has confirmed that Ben Toner has been appointed as the man in the middle for the game against Huddersfield Town.

The Lancashire referee has officiated in a total of 22 league and cup matches this season, but just four have been in the second tier, having also refereed one Championship fixture in each of the last two campaigns.

Toner has issued a total of 109 yellow cards this season and one red.

Rob Smith and Ian Cooper are due to be the assistant referees for the 3pm kick-off, with Leigh Doughty the fourth official.

The Hornets have not enjoyed a home league success since beating Norwich City 3-2 at the end of November, the same time of the year when the Terriers last won on the road in the league seven away matches ago.
