Jonathan Moss will referee Monday's Championship fixture between Bolton and Blackburn Rovers at Macron Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 4-0 defeat at Rotherham United on Boxing Day, while Rovers have had eight days to recover from defeat at Reading after their festive fixture at home to Middlesbrough was postponed due to adverse weather conditions in and around the Ewood Park area.

Moss, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 14 matches so far this season - issuing 44 yellow cards and three red.

His most recent outing was on December 26, when he was the man in the middle for Southampton's 4-0 victory over Arsenal at St Mary's Stadium. The West Yorkshire official produced one yellow card in that game, to Saints forward Shane Long.

Moss' last match in charge of Bolton was in January 2014, when they were beaten 1-0 by Cardiff City in an FA Cup fourth round tie at the Reebok Stadium. Seven players entered the book that afternoon, with Alex Baptiste, Jay Spearing, Neil Danns and Lee Chung-Yong having their names taken for the hosts.

The last time he refereed a Blackburn fixture was in August 2010, when they were 3-1 winners over Norwich City in a League Cup second round tie at Ewood Park. He kept his cards in his pocket on that occasion.

Below is the full set of officials for Monday's game between Bolton and Blackburn:

Referee: Jonathan Moss
Assistant Referees: Edward Smart and Matthew Wilkes
Fourth Official: Jeremy Simpson
