Stephen Martin will referee Saturday's Sky Bet Championship fixture between Bolton and Norwich City at Macron Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 3-3 draw at Sunderland on Tuesday, while the Canaries were beaten 2-0 at home by Wolves on the same evening.

Martin, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 15 matches so far this season - issuing 24 yellow cards and two red.

His most recent outing was on October 28, when he was the man in the middle for Cardiff City's goalless draw at home to Millwall in the Championship. The Staffordshire official produced three yellow cards in that game, two of which went to members of the hosting side.

Martin's last match in charge of Bolton was on August 19, when they were beaten 2-1 by Derby County in a Championship clash at Macron Stadium. Three cautions were issued that afternoon, including two to Wanderers duo Mark Beevers and Jem Karacan, respectively.

The last time he refereed a Norwich fixture was on March 7, as they held Bristol City to a 1-1 draw in a Championship encounter at Ashton Gate. Three players entered the book that evening, including the visiting pair of Mitchell Dijks and Russell Martin.

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

Referee: Stephen Martin
Assistant Referees: Matthew McGrath and Jonathan Hunt
Fourth Official: Scott Duncan
