Robert Lewis will referee Saturday's Emirates FA Cup first-round tie between Bolton and Plymouth Argyle at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 2-1 victory at home to Fleetwood Town last Saturday, while the Pilgrims were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea U21 in the Trophy the previous Tuesday.

Lewis, who will take charge of the tie, has officiated 12 matches so far this season - issuing 50 yellow cards and three red.

His most recent outing was on October 26, when he was the man in the middle for Port Vale's goalless draw with Oldham Athletic in League Two. The Shrewsbury official brandished two yellow cards at Vale Park, both of which went to members of the home side.

Lewis' last match in charge of Bolton was on August 31, when they were beaten 5-0 by Gillingham in a League One clash at the MEMS Priestfield Stadium. Two players were cautioned that afternoon, including Wanderers midfielder Jason Lowe.

The last time he refereed a Plymouth fixture was on October 12, as they drew 1-1 with Swindon Town in a League Two encounter at the County Ground. Seven players entered the book that afternoon, including Argyle trio Joe Riley, Danny Mayor and Niall Canavan.

Below is the full set of officials for Saturday's tie between Bolton and Plymouth Argyle:
