Darren England will referee Saturday's FA Cup third-round tie between Bolton and Walsall at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 6-0 defeat at Hull City on New Year's Day, while the Saddlers were beaten 2-1 at Charlton Athletic in a League One meeting that same afternoon.

England, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 24 matches so far this season - issuing 91 yellow cards and four red.

His most recent outing was on January 1, when he was the man in the middle for Nottingham Forest's 4-2 victory over Leeds United in the Championship. The Yorkshire official brandished two yellow cards in that game, as well as issuing a straight-red to United midfielder Kalvin Phillips.

England's last match in charge of Bolton was in April 2018, when they were beaten 3-0 by Derby County in a Championship clash at Pride Park. Two players were cautioned that afternoon, including Wanderers forward Adam Le Fondre.

The last time he refereed a Walsall fixture was also in April 2018, as they held Oldham Athletic to a 1-1 draw in a League One encounter at Boundary Park. Two players entered the book that evening, including visiting defender Nicky Devlin.

Below is the full set of officials for Saturday's tie between Bolton and Walsall:
