Jonathan Moss will take charge of the New Years Day clash between Queens Park Rangers and Norwich City
Moss from West Yorkshire progressed from the National List of Assistant Referees to the full Referees List in 2005.
His first fixture as a fully-fledged referee was Shrewsbury’s home defeat to Rochdale courtesy of a Grant Holt strike in August 2005.
Thus far this season Mr Moss has dished out 32 yellow cards and three reds in 18 games – giving him an average of 1.94 cards per game.
He will be assisted by Mr David Margetts (Essex) and Mr Wayne Porter (Lincolnshire) – with the fourth official Mr Glenn Hambling (Norfolk).
In 2007/08 Mr Moss oversaw his first Rangers game as Mick Harford’s QPR lost out to Colchester United at Layer Road.
Following the sacking of Gregory, Harford dipped into the transfer market to sign Rowan Vine, both he and Hogan Ephraim scored in a 4-2 defeat against the eventually-relegated U’s.
The following season QPR entertained Steve Coppell’s Reading, a side looking a good bet for a playoff place. In a typically dull affair it ended goalless at Loftus Road.
Later on that season Rangers had the chance to play party poopers as they travelled to Wolverhampton Wanderers, who needed just one more win to secure their place in the Premier League.
Sylvan Ebanks-Blake’s goal just after half time secured the points and the prize for Wolves who were promoted as champions of the Championship.
He presided over Jim Magilton’s Queens Park Rangers as their season took a turn for the worse live on Sky television.
Off the back of some thumping form, Rangers were beaten at home by Leicester City with Adel Taarabt’s first half goal cancelled out by a Matty Fryatt double.
