Tony Harrington will referee Saturday's Championship fixture between Leeds United and Bolton at Elland Road.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 2-1 defeat at home to Burnley last weekend, while United were beaten 4-0 at Brighton & Hove Albion on Monday evening - in a game where all goals came inside the opening 45 minutes.

Harrington, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 21 matches so far this season - issuing 56 yellow cards and one red.

His most recent outing was on February 27, when he was the man in the middle for Accrington Stanley's 2-2 draw with Barnet in League Two. The Cleveland official kept his cards in his pocket on that occasion.

Harrington's last match in charge of Bolton was in December 2015, when they were beaten 3-2 by Cardiff City at Macron Stadium. Four players were cautioned that day, while Wanderers' Jose Manuel Casado also received a red.

The last time he refereed a Leeds fixture was in April 2015, as they were beaten 2-1 by Charlton Athletic at The Valley. Two players entered the book that day, both of which were in the Addicks side.

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

Referee: Tony Harrington
Assistant Referees: Steven Meredith and Michael Hanley
Fourth Official: Ben Toner
