Charles Breakspear will referee Saturday's League One fixture between Southend United and Bolton at Roots Hall.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 2-1 FA Cup defeat at Crystal Palace on Tuesday, while the Shrimpers were 2-1 winners over Rochdale in league action last Saturday.

Breakspear, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 26 matches so far this season - issuing 104 yellow cards and five red.

His most recent outing was on January 14, when he was the man in the middle for Shrewsbury Town's 1-0 win over Bradford City in League One. The Surrey official produced one yellow card in that game, which went to Salop midfielder James O'Brien.

Breakspear's last match in charge of Bolton was in February 2014, when they were beaten 1-0 at Ipswich Town in the Championship. One caution was issued that evening, to Town's Christophe Berra, while the Tractor Boys secured victory through a second-half penalty from David McGoldrick.

The last time he refereed a Southend fixture was in October 2016, as they ran out 3-0 winners at Milton Keynes Dons. Four players entered the book that afternoon, including visiting defender Ben Coker.

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

Referee: Charles Breakspear
Assistant Referees: Michael Webb and Ian Rathbone
Fourth Official: Sam Purkiss
