This weekend’s clash with Norwich City at Carrow Road will see Tim Robinson as the man with the whistle.
Tim, from West Sussex, is in his sixth year on the EFL list and last took charge of North End in his only trip to Deepdale, when we overcame Birmingham City 2-1 back in March.
That was his fourth game overall in charge of the Lilywhites, the others all being away trips; Brentford, Ipswich and a 2-0 victory at Coventry City when Joe Garner and recently returned club captain Tom Clarke were on the scoresheet.
This will be his third Canaries game of the season, although his first at Carrow Road, having overseen wins for Daniel Farke’s men at Reading and then in their big local derby against Ipswich Town last month. Those are two of his 21 games, where he has issued 61 cautions and eight red cards so far this season.
The assistants on Saturday afternoon will be Mark Jones and Matthew McGrath, whilst the fourth official assigned to the game is Andy Davies.
