Scott Duncan will referee Tuesday's Championship fixture between Birmingham City and Bolton at St Andrew's.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw at home to Queens Park Rangers on Saturday, while the Blues haven't been in action since playing out a goalless draw at Rotherham United on February 13.

Duncan, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 25 matches so far this season - issuing 62 yellow cards and two red.

His most recent outing was on February 20, when he was the man in the middle for Bradford City's 2-2 draw with Rochdale in League One. The Northumberland official produced two yellow cards in that game, with one going to each side.

Duncan's last match in charge of Bolton was in September 2015, when they ran out 2-1 winners over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Macron Stadium. Two players were cautioned that afternoon, with Gary Madine on the receiving end for the home side.

The last time he refereed a Birmingham fixture was in September 2014, as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Leeds United. Again, two players entered the book on that occasion, with Blues duo Wes Thomas and Demarai Gray the recipients.

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

Referee: Scott Duncan
Assistant Referees: Robert Jones and William Smallwood
Fourth Official: Christopher Sargin
