Simpson gets a difficult local derby, how the appointments people are able to justify seems difficult to understand after recent performances.
Taylor doesnt have far to travel for his game.
Gillett with a good appointment.
Tierney with another plum tie after recent unconvincing.
With some of these appointments it is surprising ward has been rewarded after his display at huddersfield of recent.

I'm not sure it's much of a reward for an SG2 referee. I believe the appointing powers for the FA Cup are different to those for the Championship and League. It wouldn't in the least surprise me if there is no joined up thinking between them.
I know the appointing powers for the cup competitions are different to the pgmol for sg1 and sg2, in fact i believe an ex colleague of mine from younger days had an influence on the f a cup appointments, he has now retired.
 You might be right that there is probably no joined up thinking but i would expect the appointing team to have watched some football and certain performances before appointing.

Ps i have just amended my previous post re ward as i missed a not in it, now says surprised he has not been rewarded.
