Mick Russell will referee Sunday's Championship fixture between Leicester City and Bolton at the King Power Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 1-0 victory at Barnsley on Boxing Day, while the Foxes beat Reading by the same scoreline on the same afternoon.

Russell, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 15 matches so far this season - issuing 41 yellow cards and two red.

His last outing was on December 26, when he was the man in the middle for Charlton Athletic's 3-2 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion at The Valley. The Hertfordshire official produced two yellow cards in that game, both of which were shown to Albion players.

Russell has never previously taken charge of a Bolton fixture, but has refereed a Leicester game. The last time he took charge of the Foxes was in April, when they were held to a 2-2 draw by Birmingham City. One yellow card was shown that day, while the Blues also converted a stoppage time penalty.

Below is the full set of officials for Sunday's game between Leicester and Bolton:

Referee: Mick Russell
Assistant Referees: Marvyn Amphlett, Nigel Smith
Fourth Official: Mark Howes
