Tony Harrington will oversee Wanderers' Sky Bet Championship clash with Sunderland on Tuesday night.
An experienced official having been involved in the game since 2008, the Cleveland-based referee will be running the rule over his 14th fixture this term.
Mr Harrington last took charge of a Bolton game back in September, sending off Filipe Morais as the Whites lost 2-0 away at Bristol City.
So far this term, he has dished out 51 yellow cards and two red cards, while he issued 121 yellow cards and four red cards in 34 games last season.
Paul Hodskinson and Mark Dwyer will run the line while Andrew Madley is the fourth official.
