MERSEYSIDE official Robert Jones will take charge of Tuesday night's clash at Accrington Stanley.
This is Jones' second season at this level after promotion from the National League in 2016, with his last game at that level being Town's 3-1 Promotion Final victory over Forest Green Rovers at Wembley Stadium.
He last took charge of the Mariners in the 3-0 win at top of the table Plymouth Argyle last November where a Danny Collins goal followed by an Omar Bogle brace was the difference at Home Park.
He handed out 122 yellow cards and four reds in 41 games last season and 16 yellows and two reds in seven games so far this campaign.
Jones will be assisted by Barry Gordon, Paul Graham and fourth official Simon Mather.
