Stephen Martin will referee Saturday's Championship fixture between Bolton and Burnley at Macron Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 1-0 defeat at Birmingham City on Tuesday, while the Clarets were 1-0 winners over Nottingham Forest on the same evening.

Martin, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 25 matches so far this season - issuing 61 yellow cards and four red.

His most recent outing was on February 13, when he was the man in the middle for Swindon Town's 4-1 victory at Colchester United in League One. The Staffordshire official kept his cards in his pocket in that game.

Martin's last match in charge of Bolton was in August 2014, when they were beaten 2-1 by Middlesbrough at Macron Stadium. Five players were cautioned that night, including David Wheater and Liam Feeney for the home side.

The last time he refereed a Burnley fixture was on January 12, as they secured a 5-0 away win at MK Dons. Two players entered the book on that occasion, while the Dons were also reduced to ten men when defender Anthony Kay was shown a straight red card 15 minutes from time.

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

Referee: Stephen Martin
Assistant Referees: Glen Hart and Christopher Akers
Fourth Official: Peter Bankes
