David Jones will present Sky Sports' Super Sunday coverage this weekend, the first such programme since the departure of usual presenters Richard Keys and Andy Gray.
Jones stood in for Keys for last week's Monday night match between Bolton and Chelsea after Keys and Gray were stood down following sexist comments made off-air about assistant referee Sian Massey and West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady on Saturday, January 22.
Gray was subsequently sacked by Sky, with Keys resigning a day later.
Jones will be joined in the studio on Sunday by regular Sky analysts Jamie Redknapp and Ray Wilkins.
Sky are keen to stress that presenting duties will, for now, be decided on a game-by-game basis but the move clearly indicates how well thought of Jones is and can only enhance his prospects of replacing Keys full-time.
Jones will also present coverage of the West Brom v Wigan match this evening, where the punditry will be provided by former Baggies favourite Cyrille Regis and ex-Wigan defender Arjan de Zeeuw.
Ed Chamberlin will head up Wednesday night's programme from Craven Cottage, where Fulham host Newcastle. Chris Coleman - who played for and managed the Cottagers - and former Newcastle and Fulham midfielder Lee Clark will be the match pundits.Reuse content
