Andy Davies will officiate the Tigers' Sky Bet Championship clash with Cardiff City at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday.
A former player with a number of clubs at youth level, Davies capitalised on this experience to make a rapid rise through the refereeing ranks. He was appointed to the EFL Referees List in 2012/13 and since then has refereed almost 200 first-team fixtures in all competitions.
He has run the rule over 29 games in all competitions so far this season, dishing out 98 yellow cards and six red cards, and will be taking charge of only his second game involving the Tigers in 2017/18 having overseen our goalless home draw with Aston Villa at the end of March,
Mark Dwyer and Paul Hodskinson will run the lines, while Eddie Ilderton will be on fourth official duties.
