Chris Foy will referee Saturday's Championship fixture between Bolton and Sheffield Wednesday at the Reebok Stadium.

Having won their previous game, away at Birmingham City, Wanderers play host to the only Championship side yet to pick up a win so far this campaign. Foy, who will take charge of the game, has officiated five matches so far this season - issuing 15 yellow cards and no red.

His last outing was on October 5, when he was the man in the middle for Manchester United's 2-1 Premier League victory over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. The Merseyside official produced six yellow cards in that game, four of which went to David Moyes' visiting side.

The last time Foy refereed a Bolton fixture was in February, when Dougie Freedman's side beat came from behind to beat Burnley 2-1 on home soil. Three yellow cards were brandished on that afternoon, with Wanderers defender Zat Knight receiving one of them.

Foy's last game in charge of Wednesday was in April 2010, when he took charge of their 1-1 draw with Sheffield United in a Steel City derby at Hillsborough. He showed two yellow cards to each side on that afternoon.

Below is the full set of officials for Saturday's game between Bolton and Sheffield Wednesday:

Referee: Chris Foy
Assistant Referees: Sian Massey, Matthew Wilkes
Fourth Official: Steven Rushton
