Anthony Backhouse will be the man in charge on Thursday when Oldham Athletic take on Morecambe at the Globe Arena on Boxing Day (3pm).
Backhouse has officiated 17 games this season, handing out 60 yellows and two red cards.
This will be his first time refereeing both teams this season, after a recent appointment in the Sky Bet Championship. The only fixture he has took charge this campaign where a card wasn't shown was in the Emirates FA Cup First Round.
He will be assisted by Gary Hilton and Billy Smallwood with Wade Smith as the Fourth Official.
