A referee is set to take charge of a game involving Watford for the third and final time this season when the curtain comes down on the regular Championship campaign tomorrow.

The EFL website has announced that James Bell has been appointed to officiate in the Hornets trip to the Riverside Stadium to take on Middlesbrough on Saturday lunchtime.

Bell has refereed two previous Watford matches this season, the 1-0 defeat at Stoke City in August and the goalless draw against Preston North End at Vicarage Road at the start of last month.

The official has taken charge of 26 league and cup fixtures this season, showing a total of 109 yellow cards and five reds.

Ian Cooper and Robert Hyde are due to be the assistant referees for the 12.30pm kick off, with Ben Toner on fourth official duties.
