Ben Toner has been appointed referee for Rovers’ clash with Colchester United on November 28.
The Lancashire official has taken charge of 13 matches this term, with the majority coming in Sky Bet League One. He has issued 65 yellow cards and no reds across those games.
This will be his first outing of the season refereeing a Rovers game but he previously handled them on nine occasions over the last eight years.
His most recent game involving Rovers was the 2-1 win over Manchester City U21 in the EFL Trophy in September 2021. Of the nine matches, Rovers won four, with two ending level.
Toner will be assisted by Graeme Fyvie and Ryan Williams on Tuesday while Richard Wigglesworth has been assigned fourth official duties.
