JASON Tindall insists he has "no issues" with Jonathan Moss, who is set to referee Cherries for the first time in more than seven months tomorrow.

Moss last officiated a Cherries match back in February, during the 2-1 Premier League defeat to Sheffield United.

His performance on the day upset various members of the Cherries squad, with the club also subsequently asking the Premier League to investigate Moss's alleged comments at the time.

In an exclusive interview with the Echo back in February, midfielder Dan Gosling branded Moss "a disgrace", urging him to "come out and apologise" after claiming he showed Cherries "zero respect" during the contest at Bramall Lane.

Gosling said of Moss: "The comments that he made especially to me and one other player – talking about the relegation zone and ‘you’re still in the relegation zone’, ‘you’re having one’, ‘your team’s having one’ this and that and it was very, very disrespectful.”

Neither Gosling nor Moss faced any action from the Premier League or the FA. Cherries stood by their player, but stopped short of filing an official complaint. The refereeing body, PGMOL, declined to comment.

Moss has been named as the referee for tomorrow's Carabao Cup game between Manchester City and Cherries at Etihad Stadium.

Asked if he had any concerns about the appointment, Tindall, who was assistant manager to Eddie Howe at the time of the incident at Bramall Lane, told the Daily Echo: "Jon’s managed us many times in the past and I’ve got a lot of respect for Jon as a referee. 

"I don’t think you referee at the level he has for so long if you’re not a good referee. 

"I like Jon. I’ve got no issues with him and I’ll look forward to seeing him against Man City tomorrow evening."
