Referee: Andy Davies
Assistant Referees: Daniel Leach and Andrew Fox
Fourth Official: Robert Lewis
Andy Davies took charge of his first EFL games back in 2012 and stepped up to the Sky Bet Championship rotation with the Select Group 2 of referees in 2016.
The Bees are Davies most frequent assignment with the Hampshire official taking charge of 11 previous Brentford outings, which have produced six wins, four defeats, and one draw. Last season his three games ended in two wins and a draw for the men in red and white. After our 1-1 draw at home to Derby County in September, he took charge of a pair of victories, against Bolton Wanderers and Nottingham Forest, after Christmas.
Last weekend saw Davies show five yellow cards as Ipswich Town left it late to snatch an opening day point from their game against newly-promoted Blackburn Rovers.
