Paul Tierney will referee Saturday's League One fixture between Bolton and Millwall at Macron Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 1-0 defeat at Peterborough United last Sunday, while the Lions were 4-0 winners at home to Bristol Rovers the previous afternoon.

Tierney, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 11 matches so far this season - issuing 42 yellow cards and one red.

His most recent outing was on November 5, when he was the man in the middle for Derby County's 3-2 victory at Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Championship. The Lancashire official produced six yellow cards in that game, as well as pointing to the penalty spot.

Tierney's last match in charge of Bolton was on March 12, when they were beaten 2-1 by Preston North End at the Macron. Three cautions were issued that afternoon, with Darren Pratley amongst the recipients.

The last time he refereed a Millwall fixture was on May 8, as they ran out 2-1 winners at Gillingham. Three players entered the book that day, while Lions defender Mahlon Romeo also received a straight-red card.

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