Tony Harrington will be the man in charge of Saturday's visit to Blackburn Rovers.

He has only refereed The Bees five times previously, with our first win under him coming back in March as we beat Burton Albion 2-0 at The Pirelli Stadium. Harrington Bees debut was a 0-0 draw at Wigan Athletic in 2014. A pair of Sky Bet Championship defeats during the 2016/17 season to Preston North End and Blackburn Rovers was followed up by a 1-1 draw at home to Reading back in September 2017.  

Harrington's only game so far this campaign was last weekend's 7-1 victory for West Bromwich Albion over Queens Park Rangers, during which he showed three yellow cards and awarded The Baggies two spot kicks.
