Michael Salisbury will referee Sunday's Sky Bet League One fixture between Bolton and Shrewsbury Town at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a goalless draw at Sunderland on Boxing Day, while the Shrews were beaten 2-1 at home by Rotherham United that same afternoon.

Salisbury, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 19 matches so far this season - issuing 58 yellow cards and eight red.

His most recent outing was on Thursday, when he was the man in the middle for Accrington Stanley's 1-0 victory over Blackpool in League One. The Lancashire official brandished five yellow cards at Bloomfield Road, three of which went to members of the winning visitors.

Salisbury has never previously taken charge of a Bolton, but did last referee a Shrewsbury fixture on March 30 as they ran out 2-0 winners over Southend United in a League One encounter at Roots Hall. Three players entered the book that afternoon, including Town duo Ro-Shaun Williams and Shaun Whalley.

Below is the full set of officials for Sunday's game between Bolton and Shrewsbury:

Referee: Michael Salisbury
Assistant Referees: Helen Edwards and Geoffrey Liddle
Fourth Official: Matthew Parry
