Stephen Martin will referee Tuesday's Championship fixture between Bolton and Middlesbrough at Macron Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest on Saturday, while Boro were beaten 1-0 at Leeds United on the same afternoon.

Martin, who will take charge of the game, has officiated two matches so far this season - issuing five yellow cards and no red.

His last outing was on August 16, when he was the man in the middle for Shrewsbury Town's 2-1 victory over Tranmere Rovers at Greenhous Meadow. The Staffordshire official produced two yellow cards in that game - one to each side.

Martin's last match in charge of Bolton was in August 2013, when Wanderers were beaten on penalties by Tranmere Rovers - after the two sides had played out a 1-1 extra-time draw in the League Cup.

The last time he refereed a Boro fixture was in January 2014, when they were beaten 2-0 by Leicester City at the King Power Stadium. One yellow card was issued that day, to Boro's Daniel Ayala.

Below is the full set of officials for Tuesday's game between Bolton and Middlesbrough:

Referee: Stephen Martin
Assistant Referees: David Benton, Barry Cropp
Fourth Official: Scott Oldham
