Refwatch: Dale v Bolton Wanderers

Referee James Adcock is the man in the middle for Dale’s home game against Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.
This means the Nottinghamshire official has refereed two out of three Dale home league fixtures, as he was also in charge of our 3-0 defeat to Portsmouth at the Crown Oil Arena in November.
James has been on the National List since 2011 and before the last couple of months, it had been over four years since we had seen him at a Dale match.
That appointment was back in September 2015 when he took charge of Dale’s 3-1 defeat at Millwall.
Prior to that, Mr Adcock was in the middle at Bristol City in February 2015, where Aaron Wilbraham’s header gave The Robins a 1-0 win over Keith Hill’s Rochdale side.
James was also at Spotland in October 2012, when he dismissed Dale’s Bobby Grant in a 0-0 draw with Bradford.
Mr Adcock’s full list of Dale appointments is:
Oct 2011 Leyton Orient (h), L 0-2
James made an impressive start to his career at National List level by refereeing League Two play-off semi-finals at the end of his first two campaigns, which led to a high number of Championship appointments in 2013/14 and 2014/15.
He joined the new Select Group 2 list of officials ahead of the 2016/17 season and was widely tipped to move up to the Premier League, until injury problems sidelined him for the whole of 2017/18 and the majority of last term.
He has returned to action this season, albeit now without his SG2 status, and in total has refereed 13 matches since August, showing 42 yellow cards and three red.
