Match officials for Manchester City’s final two fixtures of January have today been announced.
Lee Mason will take charge of this Sunday’s FA Cup fourth round tie in Wales between Cardiff and City.
It will be the 46-year-old’s second City appointment of 2018 already after he had the whistle for the 3-1 win over Watford at the Etihad Stadium on 3 January.
Full list of appointments for Cardiff City vs. Manchester City (FA Cup):
Referee: Lee Mason
Assistant Referees: Simon Long & Simon Beck
Fourth Official: Robert Jones
West Brom visit the Etihad a week from Wednesday for the last game of January, and it will be Kyle Walker’s worst enemy, Bobby Madley, who is in charge that evening.
The 32-year-old from Yorkshire infamously sent off Kyle Walker in City’s only imperfect home result of the season, the 1-1 draw with Everton. Then in December when the Blues faced Leicester in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals, he blew the whistle for a very soft penalty against Walker, before booking the England right-back for diving in extra time.

Referee: Bobby Madley
Assistant Referees: Adam Nunn, Mick McDonough
Fourth Official: Kevin Friend
