Ref Jones stood down after Newcastle controversy - but he will be at Sunderland v Saints
7:46am Tuesday 14th January 2014 in Sport
Mike Jones will not referee in the Premier League this weekend - but he will be at the Sunderland v Saints game.
The Chester official took charge of Sunday's stormy clash between Newcastle and Manchester City, with a number of his decisions coming under scrutiny.
Newcastle's Cheick Tiote had a goal ruled out on a contentious offside call, while many felt the home side's Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa should have been sent off for a crude challenge on City's Samir Nasri.
There were other flashpoints during the game too, and, in the latest list of referee appointments issued by the Premier League, Jones is only named as the fourth official at Saturday's game between Sunderland and Saints.
Chris Foy takes charge of his third Saints match in 2013/14, having previously referereed the 1-1 draw at Stoke and the 3-2 home loss to Tottenham.
