With Bolton and Bury very much in the financial quagmire at the minute, both teams have been forced to postpone games this week, and in Bury’s case all season long and the reaction from the EFL has not gone down well.

The EFL’s weekly results round-up on Twitter has angered some fans after it appeared that the league organisation has snubbed both Bolton and Bury for not competing.

As seen in the tweet below, Bolton and Bury’s fixtures, instead of reading Bolton v Doncaster and Rotherham v Bury, were instead replaced with two lines that read team name v team name in what some are describing as a ‘degrading’ insult.

Bolton and Bury’s off-field woes have been well publicised so far this campaign, with Bolton’s proposed takeover deal facing greater uncertainty by the day and Bury’s very future in the football league very much under threat.

It’s sickening to see, especially from a fan perspective, that the EFL haven’t even bothered to include the names of the teams whose game were suspended, especially when the clubs themselves are in dire circumstances.

A simple Bolton p – p Doncaster would’ve been far more respectful, would it not?

After a summer of turmoil for both Bolton and Bury, as well as Coventry City who no longer play in Coventry, it’s no wonder that Bolton and Coventry fans both shared their displeasure, shall we say, at the involvement of the EFL in the clubs’ apparent downfall when they met at the UniBol earlier in August.
