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

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a goalless draw against Chesterfield on Saturday, while the Shrimpers were 3-0 winners at home to Oldham Athletic on the same afternoon.

Breakspear, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 35 matches so far this season - issuing 144 yellow cards and eight red.

His most recent outing was on April 1, when he was the man in the middle for Wycombe Wanderers' 2-0 victory at Leyton Orient in League Two. The Surrey official produced three yellow cards in that game, as well as issuing Orient defender Tom Parkes with a straight red.

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 Tuesday's game between Southend and Bolton:

Referee: Charles Breakspear
Assistant Referees: Michael Webb and Ian Rathbone
Fourth Official: Neil Davies
