Sebastian Stockbridge will referee Saturday's Sky Bet League Two opener between Bolton and Forest Green Rovers at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 3-2 defeat to Crewe Alexandra on Tuesday, while Rovers were beaten by the same scoreline at Exeter City - both games taking place in the EFL Trophy.

Stockbridge, who will take charge of the game, has officiated two matches so far this season - issuing four yellow cards and no red.

His most recent outing was on September 8, when he was the man in the middle for Doncaster Rovers' goalless draw with Bradford City in the EFL Trophy. The Tyne official brandished one yellow card at the Keepmoat Stadium, which went to Bantams midfielder Connor Shanks.

Stockbridge's last match in charge of Bolton was in December 2019, when they were beaten 2-0 by Accrington Stanley in an EFL Trophy clash at the Wham Stadium. One player entered the book that evening - Wanderers midfielder Sonny Graham.

The last time he refereed a Forest Green fixture was in August 2019, as they held Walsall to a 1-1 draw in a League Two encounter at the Banks's Stadium. Five players were cautioned that afternoon, including Rovers trio Matt Mills, Joseph Mills and Aaron Collins.

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

Referee: Sebastian Stockbridge
Assistant Referees: David Hunt and Kenwyn Hughes
Fourth Official: Hristo Karaivanov
