Iain Williamson will referee Saturday's Championship fixture between Bolton and Birmingham City at the Reebok Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 3-1 victory at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, while the Blues will play just four days after travelling to Wigan Athletic - on Tuesday night.

Williamson, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 25 matches so far this season - issuing 69 yellow cards and one red.

His last outing was on April 26, when he was the man in the middle for Leicester City's 2-0 win at Huddersfield Town in the Championship. The Berkshire official kept his cards in his pocket at the John Smith's Stadium, something he hadn't done all season prior to that game.

Williamson has never previously taken charge of a Bolton fixture, but has refereed a Birmingham game. That was way back in December 2008, when the Blues were 1-0 winners over Ipswich Town at Portman Road. Five players were booked that day, in a game which City won thanks to a first-half penalty from James McFadden.

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

Referee: Iain Williamson
Assistant Referees: Declan Ford, Michael Salisbury
Fourth Official: Rob Lewis
