Referee Keith Hill (Hertfordshire)

Referee Darren Drysdale
Referee Keith Hill, aged 47, has been a ref since 1998 with a two-year secondment to the Japanese FA as a referee instructor. He was appointed to the (Football League) National List of referees in 1998.

He first reffed a Fulham game when we beat Walsall 4-1 at Craven Cottage in the old Division Two on the 24th October 1998. This was then followed by two games in the old Division One in 2000/2001, both wins for Fulham. In the 3-1 home win against Pompey he sent off two Pompey players.

Mr Hill last reffed Fulham in a 0-0 draw at Millwall in February 2015 and last reffed Leeds in a 1-1 draw at Doncaster in the Capital One Cup August 2015

He reffed 35 games last season giving out 128 yellows and 4 reds, 3.7 yellows per game.

He rated joint 17th out of 72 refs on the average number of yellows per game last season and joint 45th of 72 on red cards

Fulham manager Kit Symons remains without Tim Ream for Wednesday's visit of Leeds after the defender suffered an injury on international duty with the USA.

Symons could also be without goalkeeper Andy Lonergan, who faces a late fitness test having come off during Saturday's 0-0 draw at Middlesbrough with a leg injury.

Scott Parker is in contention to return after remaining on the bench on Saturday, as are George Williams and Matt Smith after building up their fitness.

With no suspensions, Fulham otherwise have a fully-fit squad to choose from.

Leeds Manager Steve Evans

Leeds' new head coach Steve Evans has confirmed defender Liam Cooper will travel with the squad.

Cooper has made a quicker than expected recovery after being forced out of last weekend's home defeat to Brighton with a knee injury, but Evans may choose to rest him until Saturday.

Defender Charlie Taylor missed out on Saturday due to a virus and is expected to be sidelined for up to three weeks.

Evans has no other injury or suspension issues, with defender Sam Byram, winger Will Buckley and midfielder Luke Murphy all pushing for recalls to the starting line-up.
