Bolton Wanderers have announced this afternoon that they’ll be offering a ticket price discount for January’s game against West Brom after complaints from fans.
The offer itself will allow season ticket holders of both clubs to bring a friend to the game for free.

We’ll stand by anyone who wants to Boycott Bolton away. Hit them in the pocket so the Sky money becomes irrelevant. £32 for a Monday night in January on Sky is scandalous.
No food sales, no beer sales, no coaches paying to park!

Speaking to the club’s website regarding the announcement, Bolton’s chairman, Ken Anderson, said: “I am delighted that we are once again able to reward our loyal supporters by enabling them to bring a friend for free for what promises to be an exciting game in front of the Sky Sports cameras.”
Anderson continued: “We are also extending the offer to our visitors, West Brom for their season ticket holders.”
What do fans think of the discount?
Update: Bolton have announced that #wba and #bwfc season ticket holders will get a free ticket for every one they buy for next month’s Monday night game. Fair play Bolton, but well done to @AlbionFanatics and @AndyGulch for taking a stand and making a difference

The question now on everyone’s mind is will the offer actually entice any fans back the University of Bolton Stadium?
Chances are, Wanderers supporters are still unlikely to flock back to see their team in such poor form. Even with a ticket discount applied.
