Philip Gibbs will referee Saturday's Championship fixture between Bolton and Charlton Athletic at the Reebok Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 3-2 defeat at Wigan Athletic on Sunday, while the Addicks were beaten 2-0 at home by Derby County - extending their winless run to four games.

Gibbs, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 11 matches so far this season - issuing 29 yellow cards and two red.

His last outing was on Saturday, when he was the man in the middle for Sheffield Wednesday's 1-0 victory over Watford at Vicarage Road. The West Midlands official produced four yellow cards in that game, all of which were shown to the visiting side.

The last time Gibbs took charge of a Bolton fixture was on New Year's Day, when Wanderers were beaten 1-0 by Leeds United at Elland Road. Three yellow cards were produced that afternoon, two of which were shown to the Trotters' Keith Andrews and Benik Afobe. Gibbs also awarded the home side a 66th minute penalty, which was converted by Luciano Becchio.

Gibbs' last game in charge of Charlton was in November 2012, when they ran out 2-0 winners over Bristol City at Ashton Gate. No cards were shown in that game.

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

Referee: Philip Gibbs
Assistant Referees: Robert Ellis, Ricky Wootton
Fourth Official: Scott Duncan
