Scott Duncan will referee Sunday's Sky Bet Championship fixture between Bolton and Nottingham Forest at Macron Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 2-0 defeat at Burton Albion last Saturday, while Forest were held to a goalless draw by Bristol City on the same afternoon.

Duncan, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 36 matches so far this season - issuing 103 yellow cards and seven red.

His most recent outing was on April 28, when he was the man in the middle for Aston Villa's 1-1 draw with Derby County in the Championship. The Northumberland official produced one yellow card at Villa Park, which went to Rams forward Cameron Jerome.

Duncan's last match in charge of Bolton was on February 17, when they were beaten 2-0 by Queens Park Rangers in a Championship clash at Loftus Road. One caution was issued that afternoon - to Trotters midfielder Karl Henry - while Mark Little was also shown a straight red card.

The last time he refereed a Forest fixture was on March 30, as they lost 2-0 to Millwall in a Championship encounter at The Den. Six players entered the book that day, including the visiting trio of Tobias Figueiredo, Daniel Fox and Lee Tomlin.

Below is the full set of officials for Sunday's game between Bolton and Nottingham Forest:

Referee: Scott Duncan
Assistant Referees: Adam Crysell and Philip Dermott
Fourth Official: Geoff Eltringham
