Andrew Madley will referee Saturday's League One fixture between Bolton and Scunthorpe United at Macron Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 2-1 victory over Shrewsbury Town on Boxing Day, while United held Bradford City to a goalless draw on the same afternoon.

Madley, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 23 matches so far this season - issuing 68 yellow cards and two red.

His most recent outing was on December 26, when he was the man in the middle for Barnsley's 2-0 win over Blackburn Rovers in the Championship. The West Yorkshire official produced three yellow cards in that game, as well as showing a straight red to Rovers midfielder Darragh Lenihan.

Madley's last match in charge of Bolton was in August 2015, when they played out a 0-0 draw with Derby County in a Championship clash at the Macron. Three cautions were issued on that occasion, while Jay Spearing was dismissed for a second bookable offence in the dying stages.

The last time he refereed a Scunthorpe fixture was on August 30, as they were 2-1 winners over Middlesbrough U23 in the group stages of the Checkatrade Trophy. One player entered the book that evening - Boro defender Matthew Elsdon.

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

Referee: Andrew Madley
Assistant Referees: James Wilson and Mark Dwyer
Fourth Official: Jeremy Simpson
