Gavin Ward will referee Saturday's Sky Bet Championship fixture between Swansea City and Bolton at the Liberty Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 2-1 defeat at Leeds United last Saturday, while the Swans were beaten 3-1 at Sheffield Wednesday that same afternoon.

Ward, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 29 matches so far this season - issuing 92 yellow cards and two red.

His most recent outing was on February 23, when he was the man in the middle for Norwich City's 3-2 victory over Bristol City in the Championship. The Surrey official brandished four yellow cards at Carrow Road, three of which went to members of the losing Robins side.

Ward's last match in charge of Bolton was in November 2018, when they were beaten 1-0 by Sheffield Wednesday in a Championship clash at Hillsborough. One player was cautioned that evening - Owls defender Ashley Baker.

The last time he refereed a Swansea fixture was on January 5, as they were 3-0 winners over Aston Villa in an FA Cup third-round tie at Villa Park. Three players entered the book that day, including City midfielder Leroy Fer.

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

Referee: Gavin Ward
Assistant Referees: Dean Treleaven and Akil Howson
Fourth Official: Brett Huxtable
