Keith Stroud will referee Saturday's Sky Bet Championship fixture between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Bolton at Molineux.

Phil Parkinson's side go into the game on the back of a 2-2 draw at home to Reading on Tuesday, while Wolves were 4-1 winners over Leeds United the following evening.

Stroud, who will take charge of the game, has officiated nine matches so far this season - issuing 45 yellow cards and three red.

His most recent outing was on November 22, when he was the man in the middle for Ipswich Town's 2-2 home draw with Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship. The Hampshire official produced three yellow cards in that game, as well as awarding the Owls a second-half penalty.

Stroud's last match in charge of Bolton was in April 2016, when they were beaten 2-1 by Middlesbrough in a Championship clash at Macron Stadium. Five cautions were issued that afternoon, with Ben Amos, Josh Vela and Mark Davies the recipients on the home side.

The last time he refereed a Wolves fixture was on March 14, as they came from behind to beat Brentford 2-1 in a Championship encounter at Griffin Park. Three players entered the book that evening, including visiting defender Danny Batth.

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

Referee: Keith Stroud
Assistant Referees: Matt Foley and Billy Smallwood
Fourth Official: Anthony Backhouse
