Good news Wanderers fans, Bolton’s final two games of the season have been given the go-ahead.
The news came last night that the PFA have supplied an emergency loan to Bolton’s players. This means that, thankfully, the players’ strike that saw the Brentford game postponed has come to an end.
Bolton’s final two games, against Nottingham Forest and Brentford were in serious doubt.
While the players are now available, this measure is very much a temporary solution. It doesn’t fully guarantee that Wanderers will be able to fulfil their game with Brentford as, as things stand, the stadium staff have not been paid themselves.
As a result, there is a chance that Bolton will have to play the Brentford match behind closed doors in order to fulfil their fixture list. But we shall have to see what develops in the coming days.
No date has been set for the rearranged Brentford game as things stand.
All quiet on the takeover front… for now
The ball now is firmly back in Laurence Bassini’s court as he continues his efforts to complete his takeover of the club. After meeting with the EFL earlier in the week, today is the final chance Bassini has of his deal being ratified by the league, according to the Bolton News.
After threatening to cancel Bassini’s takeover deal on Saturday, there has been nothing from Ken Anderson in recent days. But knowing the supposedly outgoing Bolton chairman, anything could still happen.
The sooner this season is over for Wanderers, the better. The club has had its name and reputation dragged through the mud all year. Not only has the club battled to survive relegation but it’s battled to remain in existence at times this season.
It’ll make a refreshing change to put the focus solely back on the football again.
