Christopher Kavanagh will be the man in the middle for Brighton & Hove Albion's FA Cup quarter-final at Millwall on Sunday (2pm).

The Seagulls have reached the last eight of the competition for the second successive season and will bid to reach the semi-finals for just the second time in their history.

Kavanagh has taken charge of four Albion games in the Premier League this season, the draws with Leicester and West Ham and defeats to Liverpool and Tottenham. In total, he has shown 58 yellow cards and one red in 17 top-flight matches this season.

The assistant referees on Sunday will be Dan Cook and Sian Massey-Ellis, with Kevin Friend the fourth official.

VAR will not be in use for the game.
