WANDERERS will send first team players to Nottingham Forest this weekend – but question marks still hang over their final game against Brentford.

Personal loans supplied to players from the PFA yesterday have ensured Sunday’s match at the City Ground will be played as scheduled but there remains a number of hurdles to negotiate before the rescheduled match against the Bees goes ahead.

The EFL should confirm today which day the Brentford game will be played but The Bolton News understands there is no guarantee from within the dressing room that all senior players will make themselves available to play.

On top of that, the SAG (Safety Advisory Group) will decide prior to the game whether the stadium can keep its safety certificate, which is currently in some doubt as match-day staff have not been paid.

A statement from the dressing room thanked the PFA last night: “The players would like to state their appreciation for the ongoing support of the PFA throughout this difficult period.

“We are especially grateful for the significant financial assistance that was offered and received today.”

There has been a suggestion from Brentford sources that the club could consider playing its own youth players in solidarity next week.

Brentford boss Thomas Frank takes his side to Preston this weekend but said he hoped to extend the campaign by as little as possible.

“We have a lot of sympathy with the Bolton fans, staff and players because this is a messy situation for them, they care about their club and they don’t know what is going to happen in the future,” he said.

“There is an uncertainty of when the game is going to be played, maybe in the future, maybe not, but that is part of life.”

Today could also be a key day for Laurence Bassini as he looks to salvage his takeover plan at Wanderers.

After failing to get the go-ahead from the EFL on Tuesday night, he is expected to try again today to get his business plan passed by the league.

As The Bolton News went to press there had been no response from either the club or Ken Anderson over the 48-hour delay between Bassini’s first meeting with Shaun Harvey and his planned return visit.

It has been strongly suggested that administration could be on the cards, with David Rubin and Partners poised to move in should the Bassini bid be completely ruled out.
