Ben Atkinson has been appointed referee for Rovers’ clash with Bradford City on January 20.
The Cheshire official - who is also a dental surgeon - has taken charge of 20 matches this term, with the majority coming in Sky Bet League Two. He has issued 93 yellow cards and six red across those games.
This will be his second outing of the season refereeing a Rovers game, having taken charge of the 3-1 defeat to Notts County at the Eco-Power Stadium in August.
That was his only previous game involving Rovers, having been promoted to the EFL in the summer.
Atkinson will be assisted by Ivan Stankovic and Mark Jones on Saturday while Ross Joyce has been assigned fourth official duties.
