Bolton players threaten to boycott Brentford clash over unpaid wages
Bolton’s penultimate match of the Championship season may not go ahead with the players threatening to boycott over unpaid wages.
Wanderers’ players have gone 27 days without their salaries, and the lack of assurances over a resolution to the situation has caused the dressing room to take drastic action.
According to the Bolton News, such action could be boycotting tomorrow’s visit of Brentford to the University of Bolton Stadium.
Wanderers were relegated from the second division last week after a 2-0 defeat by Aston Villa.

Bolton’s season has been beset by financial problems, with the PFA forced to intervene and pay wages earlier this term.
Earlier this month, the players went on a 48-hour strike on behalf of non-playing staff who went unpaid for March.
