Mark Brown will referee Saturday's Championship fixture between Bolton and Derby County at Macron Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 2-1 League Cup defeat at Chelsea on Wednesday night, while Derby were 2-0 winners over Reading in the same competition the previous evening.

Brown, who will take charge of the game, has officiated eight matches so far this season - issuing nine yellow cards.

His last outing was on September 16, when he was the man in the middle for York City's goalless draw against Luton Town in League Two. The East Yorkshire official kept his cards in his pocket at Bootham Crescent, for the second time this season.

Brown's last match in charge of Bolton was in November 2013, when they were beaten 1-0 by Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium. Three yellow cards were shown that afternoon, one of which was shown to Jermaine Beckford, while Boro won the game with a late penalty.

The last time he refereed a Derby fixture was in November 2012, when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Cardiff City. Four yellow cards were shown that evening, while Craig Noone was sent off for the Bluebirds.

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

Referee: Mark Brown
Assistant Referees: Simon Barrow, Darren Strain
Fourth Official: Mark Astley
