Andrew Madley will referee Saturday's Sky Bet Championship fixture between Bolton and Sheffield United at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 1-0 victory over Birmingham City on Wednesday, while the Blades were 2-1 winners at home to Norwich City last Saturday.

Madley, who will take charge of the game, has officiated four matches so far this season - issuing 10 yellow cards and one red.

His most recent outing was on August 22, when he was the man in the middle for Sheffield Wednesday's 2-1 victory over Millwall in the Championship. The West Yorkshire official produced two yellow cards at Hillsborough, which went to Owls duo Adam Reach and Fernando Forestieri.

Madley's last match in charge of Bolton was on February 2, when they were 1-0 winners over Bristol City in a Championship clash at Macron Stadium. Four cautions were issued that evening, with Dorian Dervite and Sammy Ameobi amongst the recipients.

The last time he refereed a United fixture was on February 10, as they beat Leeds United 2-1 in a Championship encounter at Bramall Lane. Five players entered the book that day, with Blades seeing John Fleck, Lee Evans and Billy Sharp having their names taken.

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

Referee: Andrew Madley
Assistant Referees: Steven Meredith and Adam Matthews
Fourth Official: Geoff Eltringham
