Stephen Martin will referee Tuesday's Sky Bet Championship fixture between Bolton and Middlesbrough at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 2-1 defeat at home to Ipswich Town on Saturday, while Boro were beaten 3-1 at Swansea City that same afternoon.

Martin, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 29 matches so far this season - issuing 75 yellow cards and three red.

His most recent outing was on April 6, when he was the man in the middle for Rotherham United's 2-1 victory over Nottingham Forest in the Championship. The Staffordshire official brandished one yellow card at the AESSEAL New York Stadium, which went to Forest defender Saidy Janko - formerly of Wanderers.

Martin's last match in charge of Bolton was on March 12, when they were beaten 2-0 by Sheffield Wednesday in a Championship clash at the University of Bolton Stadium. No players were cautioned that evening.

The last time he refereed a Middlesbrough fixture was on March 2, as they played out a goalless draw with Wigan Athletic in a Championship encounter at the DW Stadium. Three players entered the book that day, including Boro duo Daniel Ayala and Jonathan Howson.

Below is the full set of officials for Tuesday's game between Bolton and Middlesbrough:

Referee: Stephen Martin
