Mark Heywood will take control Wanderers’ Carabao Cup first round clash away at Crewe Alexandra on Wednesday night.
This year makes the West Yorkshire based official's seventh season in the professional game.
He has overseen the Whites on three previous occasions during this time, the most recent being last season's home defeat to Swindon Town back in January.
A Sky Bet League One and League Two regular, Mr Heywood has ran the rule over 36 games last year, dishing out 162 yellow cards and seven red cards.
He opened the 2017/18 season at Gigg Lane as he controlled Bury's 1-0 victory over Walsall on opening day, brandishing three yellow cards.
Mark Griffiths and Natalie Aspinall will run the line while Ricky Wootton is the fourth official.
