Andy Woolmer will referee Tuesday's Sky Bet League Two fixture between Bolton and Morecambe at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a 3-3 draw at Carlisle United on Boxing Day, while the Shrimps were 3-1 winners at home to Grimsby Town that same afternoon.

Woolmer, who will take charge of the game, has officiated 15 matches so far this season - issuing 52 yellow cards and no red.

His most recent outing was on December 26, when he was the man in the middle for Charlton Athletic's 2-2 draw with Plymouth Argyle in League One. The Northamptonshire official brandished four yellow cards at The Valley, three of which went to members of the visiting side.

Woolmer's last match in charge of Bolton was in April 2019, when they were beaten 2-0 by Blackburn Rovers in a Championship clash at Ewood Park. He kept his cards in his pocket on that occasion.

The last time he refereed a Morecambe fixture was in October 2014, as they ran out 1-0 winners over Southend United in a League Two encounter at Roots Hall. Three players were cautioned that day, including Shimps duo Shaun Beeley and Kevin Ellison.

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

Referee: Andy Woolmer
Assistant Referees: Nick Greenhalgh and Akil Howson
Fourth Official: Wade Smith
