Referee Gary Sutton
Gary Sutton will referee Tuesday's Championship fixture between Bolton and Fulham at Macron Stadium.

Lincolnshire's top official has been on the National List of referees since 2009, he was previously on from 2005-2007, but found himself demoted after just two seasons, Sutton is now back refereeing the professional game and can normally be found in League 1 and League 2 at the weekend.

Ref Sutton has never previously refereed a game involving Fulham. Sutton's last match in charge of Bolton was in December 2014, when they were held to a goalless draw by Ipswich Town. Five bookings were made that afternoon

He has officiated 22 matches so far this season - issuing 62 yellow cards and three red, 2.82 yellows and 0.14 reds per game Last season he refed 29 games and issued 83 yellows and 6 reds.

Bolton Wanderers

Bolton will be without nine first-team players for Fulham's visit to the Macron Stadium.

Liam Trotter (thigh) and David Wheater (dead leg) are the latest two casualties after the duo came off at half-time in Saturday's 4-1 defeat at Derby.

Boss Neil Lennon does not expect any of his other injured players back so Adam Bogdan (ankle), Emile Heskey (hamstring), Matt Mills (knee), Max Clayton (ankle), Mark Davies (knee), Craig Davies (hamstring) and Darren Pratley (hamstring) all remain sidelined.

Neil Danns is back from suspension, though, while Wanderers are hopeful new loan signing Saidy Janko will be registered in time.


Fulham will monitor the fitness of skipper Scott Parker.

The former England midfielder missed Saturday's 1-1 draw against Birmingham through illness, with Ross McCormack wearing the captain's armband in his absence.

The Cottagers' injury problems are easing, however, after Fernando Amorebieta (knee) and Tim Hoogland (hernia) made their comebacks for the club's Under-21 side on Friday.

Fellow defender Sean Kavanagh is also back in training after a month out with a knee injury.
