Scott Oldham will referee Saturday's Sky Bet League One fixture between Bolton and Fleetwood Town at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 3-1 victory over Manchester City U21 in the Trophy on Tuesday night, while Town were 1-0 winners at home to Milton Keynes Dons in league competition last Saturday.

Oldham, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 11 matches so far this season - issuing 31 yellow cards and no red.

His most recent outing was on October 22, when he was the man in the middle for Northampton Town's 2-0 victory at Carlisle United in League Two. The Lancashire official brandished two yellow cards at Brunton Park, both of which went to members of the winning visitors.

Oldham has never previously taken charge of Wanderers, although most recently oversaw a Fleetwood fixture in October 2018 when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Wycombe Wanderers in a League One encounter at Highbury Stadium. Four players entered the book that evening, including Cod Army duo Ashley Eastham and Ross Wallace.

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

Referee: Scott Oldham
Assistant Referees: Joe Simpson and Mark Cunliffe
Fourth Official: Gary Hilton
