He was last in charge of the Amex home game against Wolves last season.
Wolves won that one 1-0 in a game Albion believed should have been postponed due to player unavailability as Covid impacted the football world.
Harrington’s three games so far this season include one in the Premier League as Southampton drew 2-2 with Leeds.
Prior to last season, the Cleveland official’s only refereeing appointment at Amex was the Albion’s 1-0 win over Blackburn in the promotion run-in in 2017, when Glenn Murray scored the only goal.
Chris Kavanagh will be on VAR duty.
The full officiating team is as follows.
Referee: Tony Harrington. Assistants: Simon Long, Steve Meredith. Fourth Official: Andre Marriner. VAR: Chris Kavanagh. VAR Assistant: Mark Scholes.
