The Sky Bet Championship side, relegated to the third tier last week, released a short statement on Friday night
Bolton Wanderers’ Sky Bet Championship match at home to Brentford on Saturday has been called off, the clubs have announced.
The EFL have also issued a statement confirming the game would not go ahead, which also said Bolton would be referred to an Independent Disciplinary Commission for being “guilty of misconduct”.
The statement said: “Following the failure of Bolton Wanderers to provide formal confirmation of its ability to meet its obligation to fulfil its Championship fixture against Brentford FC on Saturday (27 April), the game will not go ahead as planned.
“Earlier on Friday, the playing staff at the club issued a collective statement confirming that they had decided not to fulfil the remaining fixtures of the season unless they received monies owed to them.
“As a result of these disappointing developments, the league has been forced to suspend Saturday’s fixture and under EFL Regulations, the club is now deemed to be guilty of misconduct and will be referred to an Independent Disciplinary Commission.
“The EFL Board will now consider the matter of determining whether the fixture will be played or not.No further comment will be made at this time.”
A statement from Brentford read: “The Sky Bet Championship game between Bolton Wanderers and Brentford due to be played tomorrow, Saturday 27 April, has been called off.
“Brentford Football Club will provide a further update to supporters as soon as possible.”
