Wanderers have managed to find a quick resolution to their schedule problems after their trip to Cambridge was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

The fixture, which was abandoned after just nine minutes of play on Tuesday night, will now be re-played on Tuesday, February 20 (7.45pm).

David Rock initially took the players off the field as the ball started to hold up in the torrential conditions at the Abbey Stadium.

Ground staff tried to clear some of the standing water with brushes but it was to no avail, and official confirmation that the game had been called off came 16 minutes later.

Bolton didn’t have many slots to pick from between now and the end of the season due to their busy League One schedule, but the clubs have managed to find a quick solution.

An official statement read: "Tickets for the original game, which was called off following torrential rain shortly after kick-off, will be valid for the new date.

"Refunds for anyone unable to attend the revised fixture will be available from the Wanderers’ ticket office until 10am on the day of the game.

"Further details regarding new ticket purchases will follow in due course.

"Free travel will be available to those who travelled on the two official club coaches which went to the game last night (Tuesday, 6th February).

"Anyone who travelled on those coaches is asked to retain their original coach ticket or contact the ticket office on 01204 328 888 if they require their coach tickets to be reprinted.

"Meanwhile, a refund process for those who bought match passes for the original game on Wanderers TV will be confirmed tomorrow (Thursday)."

After the game was called off, Ian Evatt indicated that Wanderers wanted the game to be replayed as soon as possible.

He told The Bolton News: “For us, we have both got a free Tuesday two weeks from now, so let’s get it on as soon as we can."
