Surrey referee Carl Berry will be in charge when Huddersfield Town visit Bolton Wanderers for a Championship clash on Saturday.
He has taken 15 matches so far this season – issuing 58 yellow cards and five reds.
Berry’s last outing was Saturday’s League II clash between Southend United and Tranmere Rovers at Roots Hall.
His last Town match was the 2-0 home win over Yeovil Town in League I in May 2012.
Berry’s last Bolton game was in November 2012, when the home side were held 1-1 by Barnsley in the Championship.
News of his appointment comes as the row over the Sheffield Wednesday penalty that never was at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday refuses to go away.
Graham Salisbury booked Chris Maguire for simulation when he tumbled under a challenge by Joel Lynch late in the 0-0 draw.
But former top official Keith Hackett says the Preston whistler got it wrong.
Hackett, from, Sheffield, wrote in his blog on the You Are The Ref website: “I cannot recall a season where so many errors have been made by referees regarding penalty claims.
“Stuart Gray, the Sheffield Wednesday head coach and a man who understands that refereeing is not easy, was once again on the wrong side of a decision at the weekend.
“Graham Salisbury looked to be ideally positioned when Chris Maguire was brought down under a sliding tackle by Joel Lynch late in the game.
“It was an easy decision and fulfilled the law criteria of a careless challenge for which a penalty kick should be awarded.
“Instead this experienced referee decided to call Chris Maguire a cheat by not awarding the penalty kick and cautioning him for simulation.
“This decision was 100% incorrect and I was left wondering why the error was made, given that the assistant referee must have had a good view of the foul challenge.
“Sadly this was another ‘big decision’ that the referee got wrong and which had an effect on the outcome of a game.
“Now it’s no good calling for the use of video, the Football League has rejected the idea of goalline technology and still have not armed their match officials with the spray can, although they have agreed to do so.
“I suggest that Mr Salisbury and his boss David Allison should be on the phone apologising to Stuart Gray and Chris Maguire.
“By the way, how stupid is it that clubs cannot appeal against incorrect yellow cards like this one?”
Allison, also a former referee, is national group manager for Professional Game Match Officials.
He manages, trains and appoints referees for Football League matches.
