Ref watch: Mark Haywood to officiate Brighton clash

Confirmation of match officials for Saturday's visit of the Sky Bet Championship league leaders

Mark Haywood will take charge of Bolton Wanderers's clash against Sky Bet Championship league leaders Brighton & Hove Albion at Macron Stadium on Saturday.

The West Yorkshire-based referee has overseen five Whites fixtures in the past including two last season - Neil Lennon's first match as Bolton manager against Birmingham City back in October 2014 and the Whites' 1-1 home draw with Reading in March. 

A Football League official since the 2006/07 campaign, Mr Haywood has overseen eight matches so far this season, dishing out 25 yellow cards and one red card.

Karl Evans and Ricky Wootton will run the line, while Richard Clark is the fourth official.
