Ref watch: Dean in charge of south-coast clash


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Mike Dean will be the man in the middle as Brighton travel to Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

The 50-year-old has taken charge of 13 top flight fixtures this season, handing out 56 yellow cards, five red cards and awarding five penalties. 

Dean last refereed the Cherries back in October, as Eddie Howe's side overcame Crystal Palace 2-1 at Vitality Stadium. 

The official certainly possesses plenty of experience, having taken charge of FA Cup and League Cup finals in the past. 

On Saturday, Dean will be assisted by Darren Cann and Dan Robathan, with Graham Scott the fourth official.
