Ollie Yates will referee Tuesday's Papa John's Trophy group stage fixture between Bolton and Newcastle United U21 at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 2-0 victory over Salford City last Friday, while the Magpies' youngsters were last in action on November 6 - beating Leeds United 4-3 in a Premier League 2 Division Two fixture at Whitley Park, home of the Northumberland Football Association.

Yates, who will take charge of the game, has officiated nine matches so far this season - issuing 29 yellow cards and no red.

His most recent outing was on November 10, when he was the man in the middle for Cheltenham Town's 1-0 victory over Norwich City U21 in the Papa John's Trophy. The Staffordshire official brandished four yellow cards at Whaddon Road, three of which went to members of the winning home side.

Yates' last match in charge of Bolton was on February 22, when they were beaten 1-0 by Milton Keynes Dons in a League One clash at Stadium MK. Three players entered the book that afternoon, including Wanderers duo Toto Nsiala and Dennis Politic.

The last time he refereed a Newcastle U21 fixture was in September 2019, as they were beaten 2-1 by Macclesfield Town in a Leasing.com Trophy group stage tie at Moss Rose. Two players were cautioned that evening, including United defender Lewis Cass.

Below is the full set of officials for Tuesday's game between Bolton and Newcastle United U21:
