Attwell back on Premier League duty after gaffe

Stuart Attwell will be back on Premier League duty this weekend despite his high-profile error in awarding Reading a goal against Watford last Saturday.

Attwell has been chosen as the fourth official for Middlesbrough's top-flight meeting with West Brom at the Riverside on Saturday.

The 25-year-old, who earlier this season became the youngest referee to officiate in the Premier League, was thrust into the spotlight following his Vicarage Road blunder.

Attwell, under guidance from assistant Nigel Bannister, ruled Reading had opened the scoring with a John Eustace own goal in the 13th minute even though the ball had actually bobbled well wide of the post.

Reading manager Steve Coppell had offered to replay the game but the Football League confirmed yesterday the decision could not be overturned retrospectively.

Attwell has, however, been stood down from duty for tomorrow night's Carling Cup third-round match between Ipswich and Wigan, with Mike Dean taking his place.
