Geoff Eltringham will referee Friday's Sky Bet Championship fixture between Leeds United and Bolton at Elland Road.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 1-0 victory over Aston Villa before the international break, while United were beaten 2-1 at home by Sheffield Wednesday on the same afternoon.

Eltringham, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 29 matches so far this season - issuing 109 yellow cards and two red.

His most recent outing was on March 17, when he was the man in the middle for Wolverhampton Wanderers' 3-1 victory over Burton Albion at Molineux. The County Durham official produced one yellow card in that game - to Albion substitute Joe Sbarra.

Eltringham's last match in charge of Bolton was on January 1, when they were 1-0 winners over Hull City in a Championship clash at Macron Stadium. Six cautions were issued that afternoon, with Ben Alnwick, Josh Vela and Adam Le Fondre amongst the recipients.

The last time he refereed a Leeds fixture was in November 2017, as they were beaten 4-1 by Wolverhampton Wanderers in a Championship encounter at Molineux. Three players entered the referee's book that evening, while United midfielder Ronaldo Vieira was later dismissed for a second yellow card.

Below is the full set of officials for Good Friday's game between Leeds United and Bolton:

Referee: Geoff Eltringham
Assistant Referees: Philip Dermott and Shaun Hudson
