The match officials for Leeds United’s FA Cup Fourth Round Replay on Tuesday against Plymouth Argyle have been confirmed, with Robert Jones set to take charge.

The Merseyside based official is part of the Select Group 1 and FIFA list of referees, having refereed his first Premier League game in 2019.

He last took charge of Leeds in April 2023, overseeing a 2-1 Whites victory over Nottingham Forest at Elland Road.

Tuesday's fixture will be the 17th time he has taken charge of a Leeds United fixture, more than any other club he has refereed. The Whites have won eight, drawn five and lost three of the matches when Jones has been the man-in-the-middle and he has issued 24 yellow cards and one red card to Leeds players.

Jones last took charge of Plymouth in September 2017.

This will just be the third time he has refereed the Pilgrims, having overseen two previous defeats.

The last match he took charge of was Luton Town's 4-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion on January 30th.
