James Oldham will referee Saturday's Sky Bet League Two fixture between Colchester United and Bolton at the JobServe Community Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 1-0 defeat at home to Forest Green Rovers on the opening day of the league campaign, while United held Bradford City to a goalless draw as they began on the road.

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

His most recent outing was on September 8, when he was the man in the middle for Lincoln City's 1-1 draw with Scunthorpe United in the EFL Trophy. The Milton Keynes official brandished two yellow cards at the LNER Stadium, both of which went to members of the home side.

Oldham's last match in charge of Bolton was on February 11, when they were beaten 2-1 by Doncaster Rovers in a League One encounter at the Keepmoat Stadium. Two players entered the book that evening, both of whom were on the winning side.

The last time he oversaw a Colchester fixture was on February 8, as they ran out 3-0 winners over Plymouth Argyle in a League Two clash at the JobServe Community Stadium. Two players were cautioned that day, including U's defender Tom Eastman.

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

Referee: James Oldham
