AS another highly eventful week for Wanderers draws to a close, Phil Parkinson is determined to at least end on a high note with three points this afternoon.

His team – back in training after non-football staff were paid March’s wages – welcome the Championship’s bottom team, Ipswich Town.

But a final twist emerged yesterday afternoon, with an IT failure at the University of Bolton Stadium putting the staging of today’s match in doubt again.

A statement released by the club said: “Due to a critical failure of the stadium’s IT system, the match against Ipswich Town at the University of Bolton Stadium is in doubt. Engineers will be working through the night to resolve this issue and the club will provide an update at the earliest available opportunity.”

The latest problem means yet more disruption for Parkinson and his squad may be left kicking their heels after they ended their strike action and returned to training on Thursday.

Although morale in the camp is far from high at present, the manager says he is confident they could, if given the chance, add to last weekend’s win at QPR with three more points today.

“The lads have trained well but I can’t lie to you and say it’s all hunky dory around the training ground because they’ve had enough of being in this situation,” he said.

“But it’s only like the supporters having had enough of seeing their club’s name in the news, and I’ve had enough of doing interviews about it.

“We’ve all just had enough and it’s like we’ve been saying for a very long time, we’re hoping for the situation to be resolved.

“It’s been another interesting week, obviously.

“The lads didn’t come in for training on Tuesday, the court case was on Wednesday and they’ve been back in for the last two days. The attitude was good, as you’d hope and expect, and preparations have gone as well as can be expected in the circumstances.

“As for the match itself, there is a lot to play for in terms of individuals, their reputations, their credibility, their professionalism and their reputation as a group of people.

“We’ re representing a great football club and that’s what we intend to do tomorrow.”

Until a takeover is completed, speculation and intrigue on a new owner continues to mount around the club and its supporters.

But Parkinson admits he is as much in the dark as anyone, insisting: “Other than what I’ve read in the papers I don’t really know a great deal, to be honest with you, but if someone’s willing to put the money down to buy a football club they’ve got to have serious intentions.

“Like a lot of people who may have looked at the club they’ll know it’s a fantastic club and if they can get a deal over the line it’s a great project for somebody.”
