Simon Hooper will referee Tuesday's Championship fixture between Sheffield Wednesday and Bolton at Hillsborough.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw at Eastleigh on Saturday, while the Owls were 2-1 winners over Fulham on the same afternoon.

Hooper, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 27 matches so far this season - issuing 63 yellow cards and two red.

His most recent outing was on January 9, when he was the man in the middle for Burnley's 2-1 victory at Middlesbrough in the third round of the FA Cup. The Wiltshire official produced three yellow cards in that game, two of which went to the home side.

Hooper's last match in charge of Bolton was in October 2015, when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Leeds United at Macron Stadium. United's Sam Byram was the only player to be booked that afternoon, although Wanderers' defender Prince-Desir Gouano was dismissed for a professional foul.

The last time he refereed a Wednesday fixture was in September 2015, when they were 3-2 winners at home to Fulham in the Championship. Three cautions were made that day, with the Owls' Alex Lopez amongst the recipients.

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

Referee: Simon Hooper
Assistant Referees: Wayne Barratt and Akil Howson
