Referee Kevin Friend, aged 43, started refereeing at the age of 14 in his home county of Leicestershire. He officiated in the Leicestershire Senior League and Midland Football Alliance before being promoted to the National List of Referees in 2003, and later to the Select Group of Referees ahead of the 2009-10 season.

Mr Friend last reffed a Fulham game in April of this year in the tempestuous 4-3 victory over Middlesbrough which included two pens for Fulham a sending off for Boro and 4 yellows evenly split

Harrington last reffed QPR in a 2-0 away defeat by Swansea in December 2014

Last season he refed 35 games and dished out 141 yellows and 5 reds, so a rather industrious4.0 yellows per game.

Jazz Richards is set to miss Fulham's clash with near-neighbours QPR, although Ryan Fredericks will be available for the west London derby.

Summer signing Richards suffered a knock in Tuesday's Capital One Cup defeat to Stoke, meaning the defender is unlikely to feature at Craven Cottage on Friday night.

Fredericks' return to contention after a hamstring injury will help soften the blow, though, while Jamie O'Hara and Tom Cairney are available after missing out in midweek.

Scott Parker, Luke Garbutt and George Williams will be absent for QPR's visit, but the trio are back training and set to feature for the Under-21s at Derby on Monday.

Sandro and Leroy Fer are in line for their first appearances of the campaign as the Rs make the short trip.

Neither midfielder has featured for Chris Ramsey's side since relegation from the Premier League, but they are in contention once more after coming through Tuesday's development squad match against Crewe.

Sandro opened the scoring in the Under-21s' 3-1 win and lasted just over an hour on his comeback following a long-standing visa issue.

Fer managed the same after returning from a knee injury which curtailed a summer move to Sunderland, although defender Yun Suk-young remains unavailable for the trip.
