W.B.A. match officials
Mr Friend was the man in charge of the live Crewe v Leeds game on Monday night and he takes control of a Cardiff City game for the first time this season. It's not his first West Brom game. He was the referee when the Baggies lost away at Colchester in October.
So far this season he has booked 70 and sent off 8 players in 25 games.
Mr Friend has taken control of four Cardiff City games in the past. One was a 2 - 0 home win for the Bluebirds followed by three 1 - 0 defeats.
