Keith Stroud will referee Saturday's Sky Bet Championship fixture between Norwich City and Bolton at Carrow Road.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 1-0 victory over Sunderland on Tuesday, while the Canaries came from two-down to draw 2-2 at Wolverhampton Wanderers the following evening.

Stroud, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 23 matches so far this season - issuing 96 yellow cards and seven red.

His most recent outing was on February 21, when he was the man in the middle for Derby County's 2-2 draw with Leeds United in the Championship. The Hampshire official produced one yellow card in that game, which went to United midfielder Ronaldo Vieira.

Stroud's last match in charge of Bolton was in November 2017, when they were beaten 5-1 by Wolverhampton Wanderers in a Championship clash at Molineux. Four cautions were issued that afternoon, with David Wheater and Sammy Ameobi amongst the recipients.

The last time he refereed a Norwich fixture was in October 2017, as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Hull City in a Championship encounter at Carrow Road. Five players entered the book that day, including City forward Yanic Wildschut, while Tigers midfielder David Meyler was also dismissed.

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

Referee: Keith Stroud
Assistant Referees: Matt Foley and Billy Smallwood
Fourth Official: Trevor Kettle
