Lee Probert has been appointed the man in the middle for Stoke City`s final fixture of the season, away at Southampton on Sunday 19th May 2013.

Probert has refereed in 23 Premier League matches this season handing out 75 yellow cards and five red cards.

This will be the second time Probert has refereed Stoke this season, the only other occasion being Stoke`s 1-0 defeat to Fulham back in February.

Meanwhile Probert has been the man in the middle for Southampton twice this term. He was the man in black in Southampton`s 3-1 defeat to Everton and also the Saints 1-1 draw with Arsenal.

Probert`s assistant referees for the tie are G. Beswick and A. Garratt whilst Stuart Attwell is his fourth official.
