Carl Boyeson will referee Saturday's League One fixture between Port Vale and Bolton at Vale Park.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a goalless draw at home to Bury on Tuesday, while Vale were beaten 2-0 at Oxford United the previous evening.

Boyeson, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 33 matches so far this season - issuing 126 yellow cards and nine red.

His most recent outing was on April 17, when he was the man in the middle for Blackpool's 1-0 victory at Doncaster Rovers in League Two. The East Yorkshire official produced four yellow cards in that game, sent off Rovers midfielder Matty Blair, whilst also awarding the Seasiders a stoppage-time penalty from which they secured all three points.

Boyeson's last match in charge of Bolton was on January 2, when they came from behind to draw 2-2 at Coventry City. One caution was issued that afternoon - to Sky Blues defender Ryan Haynes - whilst Wanderers were also awarded a spot-kick, which was converted by Zach Clough.

The last time he refereed a Port Vale fixture was in September 2016, as they ran out 2-1 winners at home to Gillingham in League One. Four players entered the book that afternoon, all of whom were on the visiting Gills side.

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

Referee: Carl Boyeson
Assistant Referees: Geoffrey Liddle and Andrew Hendley
Fourth Official: Ricky Wootton
