Ref watch: Heywood in charge

Confirmation of officials for clash with Brentford

West-Yorkshire-based official Mark Heywood is the referee for Neil Lennon’s first home game as Bolton Wanderers manager against Brentford on Saturday.

The match will mark Mr Heywood’s first visit to the Macron Stadium, having never taken charge of a Whites game in the past. 

However, he has twice officiated our visitors before including once last season, as Brentford won promotion to the Championship, running the rule over their away trip to Shrewsbury Town where only a last-minute goal from Bolton loanee Tom Eaves denied them all three points.

Key Haycock and James Wilson will run the line, while Jason Whiteley is the fourth official.
