Paul Tierney will be the referee in charge of Watford's away fixture at Crystal Palace this weekend. 

The Lancashire-born referee has taken charge of two Hornets games so far this season, including the 2-1 home defeat against Manchester City, in which no Watford players were booked.

He also oversaw the 3-1 victory away at Burnley on the opening day of the season where Daryl Janmaat and Will Hughes were given yellow cards.

Tierney recently sent off Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg for Southampton in their 3-1 home defeat against Manchester City, but Hornets fans are more likely to remember him for the last red card he handed out before that, way back in April 2017, issued to Miguel Britos against West Brom.
