Sebastian Stockbridge will referee Saturday's Sky Bet League One fixture between Rotherham United and Bolton at the AESSEAL New York Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw with Bradford City in the Leasing.com Trophy on September 3, while United were beaten 2-1 at Doncaster Rovers last Saturday in league competition.

Stockbridge, who will referee the game, has officiated six matches so far this season - issuing 19 yellow cards and no red.

His most recent outing was on August 31, when he was the man in the middle for Northampton Town's 3-1 victory over Plymouth Argyle in League Two. The Tyne official brandished five yellow cards at Sixfields Stadium, as well as pointing to the penalty spot.

Stockbridge's last match in charge of Bolton was in March 2017, when they were 2-0 winners over Shrewsbury Town in a League One clash at Greenhous Meadow. Four players were cautioned that afternoon, including Wanderers defender and goalscorer Mark Beevers.

The last time he refereed a Rotherham fixture was in November 2017, as they were beaten 3-1 by Wigan Athletic in a League One encounter at the AESSEAL New York Stadium. Four players entered the book that afternoon, including Millers trio Richard Wood, Michael Ihiekwe and Richard Towell.

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

Referee: Sebastian Stockbridge
Assistant Referees: David Plowright and Richard Woodward
