Ref watch: East takes the whistle for cup clash

Confirmation of match officials for Wanderers' FA Cup tie with Liverpool in midweek

Roger East will officiate Bolton Wanderers' fourth round FA Cup clash with Liverpool this Wednesday. 

One of the most recent recruits to the Premier League’s team of officials, East impressed in the 2012/13 season earning his place as a permanent top flight referee. 

Taking charge of 19 games so far this season, the Wiltshire based referee has dished out 74 yellow cards and one red. 

Wednesday will be East’s first ever trip to Macron Stadium, having never officiated a Bolton Wanderers game during his career. He last reffed a Liverpool match back in October 2012 when the Reds beat Reading 1-0 at Anfield.    

Stephen Child and Richard West will run the line while Stuart Attwell is the fourth official.
