Bobby Madley will referee Saturday's Sky Bet League One fixture between Ipswich Town and Bolton at Portman Road.

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a goalless draw at home to Burton Albion this past Monday, while Town were held to a 2-2 draw by AFC Wimbledon two days prior.

Madley, who will take charge of the game, has officiated six matches so far this season - issuing 25 yellow cards and no red.

His most recent outing was on August 28, when he was the man in the middle for Swindon Town's 1-0 victory over Mansfield Town in League Two. The West Yorkshire official brandished four yellow cards at the Energy Check County Ground, three of which went to members of the home side.

Madley's last match in charge of Bolton was on May 8, when they ran out 4-1 winners over Crawley Town in a League Two clash at the People's Pension Stadium. Four players entered the book that afternoon, while Town midfielder George Francomb was dismissed soon after the half-hour.

The last time he refereed an Ipswich fixture was on March 2, as they beat Accrington Stanley 2-1 in a League One encounter at the Wham Stadium. Four players were cautioned that evening, while Stanley defender Seamus Conneely was shown a straight-red card.

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

Referee: Bobby Madley
Assistant Referees: Paul Yates and Greg Read
Fourth Official: Anthony Da Costa
