Bobby Madley will referee Saturday's Sky Bet League Two fixture between Bolton and Oldham Athletic at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a goalless draw at home to Grimsby Town last Saturday, while Latics were beaten 3-2 on home soil by Morecambe that same afternoon.

Madley, 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 October 6, when he was the man in the middle for Sunderland's 5-3 victory over Carlisle United in the EFL Trophy. The West Yorkshire official kept his cards in his pocket on that occasion.

Madley's last match in charge of Bolton was in March 2013, when they beat Blackburn Rovers 1-0 in a Championship clash at the Reebok Stadium. Three players entered the book that evening, including Trotters defender Zat Knight.

The last time he refereed an Oldham fixture was in April 2013, as they beat Crawley Town 2-1 in a League One encounter at Boundary Park. Two players were cautioned that day - home duo Connor Brown and Lee Croft.

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

Referee: Robert Madley
Assistant Referees: Richard Woodward and Kevin Mulraine
Fourth Official: Thomas Bramall
