Simon Hooper will referee Saturday's Championship fixture between Bolton and Leeds United at Macron Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 1-0 defeat at home to Birmingham City on Tuesday, while United held Fulham to a 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage the following evening.

Hooper, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 13 matches so far this season - issuing 31 yellow cards.

His last outing was on October 20, when he was the man in the middle for Preston North End's 3-0 victory at Charlton Athletic in the Championship. The Wiltshire official produced five yellow cards in that game.

Hooper's last match in charge of Bolton was on April 27, when they were beaten 3-0 at Bournemouth. Three players were booked that evening, while Wanderers' Dorian Dervite was dismissed late on for picking up his second of the game.

The last time he refereed a Leeds fixture was in August 2014, when they ran out 1-0 winners over the Trotters at Elland Road. Two yellow cards were shown that afternoon, both of which were given to United defenders.

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

Referee: Simon Hooper
