Kevin Johnson will referee Saturday's Sky Bet League One fixture between Bolton and Ipswich Town at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 5-0 defeat at Tranmere Rovers last Saturday, while Town were 2-1 winners at home to AFC Wimbledon this past Tuesday - an evening when the Trotters had a clash with Doncaster Rovers postponed due to player welfare.

Johnson, who will take charge of the game, has officiated four matches so far this season - issuing nine yellow cards and three red.

His most recent outing was on August 20, when he was the man in the middle for Portsmouth's 3-3 draw with Coventry City in League One. The Weston-super-Mare official had an eventful evening at Fratton Park, booking five players in addition to the dismissal of Sky Blues duo Fankaty Dabo and Gervane Kastaneer.

Johnson has never previously taken charge of either Wanderers or the Tractor Boys.

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

Referee: Kevin Johnson
Assistant Referees: Graeme Fyvie and Danny Gratton
Fourth Official: Mark Cunliffe
