Andy Haines will referee Tuesday's Carabao Cup first-round tie between Leeds United and Bolton at Elland Road.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 2-2 draw at home to Bristol City on Saturday, while United were 4-1 winners at Derby County later that day.

Haines, who will take charge of the game, has officiated two matches so far this season - issuing eight yellow cards and no red.

His most recent outing was on August 11, when he was the man in the middle for Cambridge United's 3-2 victory over Notts County in League Two. The Tyne & Wear official produced three yellow cards at the Abbey Stadium, all of which went to members of the winning home side.

Haines' last match in charge of Bolton was in January 2016, when they were beaten 2-0 by Huddersfield Town in a Championship clash at Macron Stadium. Three cautions were issued that afternoon, with Wanderers duo Josh Vela and Darren Pratley amongst the recipients.

The last time he refereed a Leeds fixture was in February 2015, as they lost 3-2 to Watford in a Championship encounter at Elland Road. Three players entered the book that day, with United's Lewis Cook one of those to have had his name taken.

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

Referee: Andy Haines
Assistant Referees: Matthew Jones and Wayne Grunnill
Fourth Official: Lee Freeman
