Referee: Andy Madley (West Yorkshire)
Referee Andy Madley
Referee Andy Madley, age 32 years, has been a referee, on the Football League National Referee List, since the opening day of the 2011-12 season. Madley started out in his local divisions and began to progress through the supply lines from 2004 before becoming a Premier League linesman in 2009. Madley's younger brother Robert, 29, officiates in the Premier League.

The first and only time Ref Madley bossed a Fulham game was on the 27th August 2013 in the Capital One Cup game against Burton, Fulham won 5-4 on pens. Hugo Rodallega and four home players were yellow carded. The last time Bournemouth was bossed by Ref Madley was in their 6-1 away crushing of Blackpool in December last year in which he yellow carded Brett Pitman and two Blackpool players

Last season he refed 38 games and dished out 110 yellows and 4 reds, a rate of about 3 yellows per game so not too bad. This season so far he has refed 25 games waving 71 yellows and 2 reds, about 3 yellows per game.


Fulham skipper Scott Parker is poised to return to the Fulham squad for the visit of Bournemouth.

The former England international was rested for the 1-0 midweek defeat at Watford having suffered a slight knock to his knee against Derby on Saturday.

Fellow midfielder Lasse Vigen Christensen looks set to miss out again, however, having sustained a hamstring injury against the Rams.

Fit-again full-backs Tim Hoogland (hernia) and Fernando Amorebieta (knee) should be involved again after they were named on the bench at Vicarage Road alongside striker Hugo Rodallega, who could return to the starting line-up after shaking off a leg injury.

A first win in five games means Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is unlikely to make changes.

Matt Richie returned to the side in the 2-1 win over Wolves and is likely to keep his place in the side, although Ryan Fraser is an alternative on the bench.

Winger Marc Pugh experienced no after-effects to a knee injury suffered last weekend before being substituted, but Dan Gosling and Eunan O'Kane remain sidelined.

One player who will be missing for the Cherries is defender Miles Addison who has joined Blackpool on loan after struggling for game time at Dean Court.
