Mounted police and extra officers with surveillance cameras are also being drafted in.

The move follows violent scenes in Bradshawgate after England beat Argentina last Friday. Bottles were thrown, glasses smashed against buildings and hooligans jumped on cars and telephone boxes.

Hundreds of fans are expected to pack into the pubs and bars to watch England's second round clash at lunchtime.

Police chiefs met Bolton landlords yesterday to join forces to ensure the game passes peacefully.

Chief Insp Alan Greene, of Bolton Police, praised the responsible attitude of landlords.

He said: "The majority of fans will be well behaved and it should be a great day in Bolton. But if you are caught carrying bottles or glasses you will be stopped, challenged and prosecuted."

Police will use an established by-law banning drinking alcohol on the streets. The crackdown has been welcomed by Bolton's pub bosses.

Jaoquim Zarro, the landlord of Cottons, on Bradshawgate, said: "I back the initiative because nobody wants to see any trouble."

A surveillance van will tour the streets to film troublemakers. A Bolton Council Social Services Carers Information day -- which was due to be staged on Victoria Square tomorrow -- has been postponed because of the game.

A council spokesman said: "The match will be the focus attention so we felt it was better to postpone the event."

Police have identified four people they want to question after last week's trouble.
