WANDERERS’ players have been told they will NOT be getting paid their overdue February wages.

Owner Ken Anderson had promised the squad and coaching staff their salary would be paid today if a takeover had not been completed.

Players and coaching staff are furious that the obligation has not yet been fulfilled and have issued a final deadline for the payment to be made.

They have sought advice from the PFA about their next course of action.

Phil Parkinson said in his press conference that he had been given no word on whether the money would be forthcoming.

“We still haven’t received the payment and I haven’t been told any different that we are not going to get paid today,” he said. “I’m just waiting for that call, hopefully sometime soon.

“It would have helped if the wages were in this morning because, as I said last week, I don’t want to waste more time talking about it and after a great win we wanted to move on to the next game.

“But we were told by the chairman that either the new one would be in and he’d pay the wages or that he’d do it.”

Parkinson is desperate to see the situation sorted by the time tomorrow’s crunch game against Sheffield Wednesday gets underway.

“We got a lift on Friday with just a bit of communication – yes we are going to be paid – and some positive news, re the club going forward. I’ve no reason to believe that won’t continue,” he said.

Meanwhile, The Bolton Whites Hotel is set to be hit by a winding-up petition, The Bolton News understands.

MCLcreate Limited, who provide audio-visual equipment to the hospitality areas of the club, have lodged their debt with the High Court, according to the HM Courts and Tribunals service.

Equipment which had previously been on hire with Wanderers was removed before Saturday’s game against Millwall.

The hotel had to deal with a winding-up petition from HMRC in January but settled the matter before it reached court.

Wanderers face a High Court date with HMRC on March 20 over an unpaid tax and VAT bill.

The club has declined to comment.
