First team

Hooper in charge at Molineux


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Simon Hooper will be the man in the middle of Saturday’s game against Wolves.

The 36-year-old has taken charge of just two Premier League matches this season, handing out five yellow cards and awarding one penalty across the board.

However, Hooper has officiated the Cherries once already this season, as Eddie Howe’s side beat Blackburn Rovers 3-2 in the Carabao Cup third round.

In that game, he awarded a penalty for each side, as well as handing out a red card for Derrick Williams for a deliberate handball.

On Saturday, Hooper will be assisted by Ian Hussin and Scott Ledger, with Kevin Friend the fourth official.
