Graham Scott will referee Saturday's Sky Bet Championship fixture between Bolton and Swansea City at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 2-0 defeat at Aston Villa last Friday, while the Swans were beaten 2-1 at Rotherham United the following afternoon.

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

His most recent outing was on November 3, when he was the man in the middle for Stevenage's 3-2 victory over Oldham Athletic in League Two. The Oxfordshire official produced two yellow cards at the Lamex Stadium, both of which went to members of the winning side.

Scott's last match in charge of Bolton was on April 28, when they were beaten 2-0 by Burton Albion in a Championship clash at the Pirelli Stadium. Four players were cautioned that afternoon, including Wanderers duo Mark Beevers and Darren Pratley.

The last time he refereed a Swansea fixture was on September 1, as they ran out 2-1 winners over Millwall in a Championship encounter at The Den. Two players entered the book that afternoon, while City midfielder Courtney Baker-Richardson was also dismissed.

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

Referee: Graham Scott
