Stephen Martin will referee Saturday's Sky Bet Championship fixture between Ipswich Town and Bolton at Portman Road.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 2-0 defeat at Middlesbrough on Wednesday, while the Tractor Boys were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Brentford the previous evening.

Martin, who will take charge of the game, has officiated six matches so far this season - issuing 14 yellow cards and no red.

His most recent outing was on September 15, when he was the man in the middle for Blackburn Rovers' 1-1 draw with Aston Villa in the Championship. The Staffordshire official produced five yellow cards at Ewood Park, three of which went to members of the home side.

Martin's last match in charge of Bolton was in December 2017, when they beat Sheffield United 1-0 in a Championship clash at Bramall Lane. Four cautions were issued that afternoon, with Antonee Robinson and Gary Madine having their names taken for Phil Parkinson's side.

The last time he refereed an Ipswich fixture was on April 2, as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Millwall in a Championship encounter at Portman Road. Four players entered the book that day, all of whom were members of the Town side.

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

Referee: Stephen Martin
Assistant Referees: Andrew Fox and Sam Lewis
Fourth Official: Neil Hair
