The match referee for this weekend’s televised trip to face Charlton Athletic at The Valley is David Webb.
We are seeing David for the second time this season, having had him officiated the Carabao Cup second round penalty victory over Hull City at Deepdale back in September.
That was his first game at Deepdale since 2016, when he had the whistle in PR1 for our 2-0 home win over Peterborough United in the middle of the 2015/16 campaign.
Last season he officiated two PNE games, the away matches at Birmingham City and Derby County.
Overall then he has refereed the Lilywhites on 12 occasions, some of the most memorable games including the FA Cup win at Wycombe Wanderers, when Kevin Davies scored a stunning strike from 35 yards, and a 3-2 home win over Crewe Alexandra in 2011 in the league cup.
Overall this season, he has taken charge of ten games, issuing 25 cautions and no red cards, with this being his first game officiating the Addicks in 2019/20.
He will be assisted at The Valley by assistants Graham Kane and Adrian Waters, whilst the fourth official will be Craig Hicks.
