WANDERERS’ game against Ipswich Town has been thrown into fresh doubt after a critical failure of the club’s IT systems.

The match – which had been in doubt earlier in the week because of a safety certificate – now hangs in the balance once again after a major system failure, which has affected ticketing at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Work will continue through the night to rectify the problem and a decision on whether to go ahead will be taken early tomorrow morning to minimise the effect on travelling supporters.

A statement read: “Due to a critical failure of the stadium’s IT system, Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship match against Ipswich Town at the University of Bolton Stadium is now in doubt.

“Engineers will be working through the night to resolve this issue and the club will provide an update at the earliest opportunity.”

It is understood that hospitality at the game is already under significant doubt after a deadline to pay caterers Heathcote & Co was not met.

The club has been contacted for comment.
