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

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw at home to Bristol Rovers on Tuesday, while Tranmere were beaten 1-0 by Sunderland the following evening at Prenton Park.

Oldham, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 26 matches so far this season - issuing 77 yellow cards and four red.

His most recent outing was on January 25, when he was the man in the middle for Peterborough United's 2-1 victory over Rotherham United in League One. The Lancashire official brandished two yellow cards at the Weston Homes Stadium, with each team receiving one apiece.

Oldham's last match in charge of Bolton was on January 1, when they were beaten 4-3 by Burton Albion in a League One clash at the University of Bolton Stadium. Three players were cautioned that afternoon, while Wanderers midfielder Luke Murphy was dismissed as a result of two bookable offences against his former club.

The last time he refereed a Tranmere fixture was in December 2019, as they ran out 1-0 winners over AFC Wimbledon in a League One encounter at Prenton Park. Two players entered the book that afternoon - Rovers duo Sid Nelson and David Perkins.

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

Referee: Scott Oldham
Assistant Referees: Thomas Harty and Geoffrey Liddle
