Bolton Wanderers’ players could refuse to play Saturday’s Championship game against Brentford if they are not paid by the end of Friday.

Players have still not been paid their March salaries, with April wages due to be paid on Tuesday, 30 April.

Earlier this month, the players refused to train for 48 hours on behalf of staff after March wages went unpaid.

The Professional Footballers’ Association has stepped in to help pay wages at the club earlier this season.

A pre-match press conference with manager Phil Parkinson was postponed on Friday, with no reason given by the club.

BBC Radio Manchester has contacted Bolton for comment.

Last week, former Watford owner Laurence Bassini claimed he had saved Wanderers “at the 11th hour” and prevented them from going into administration after he agreed a deal to buy the club.

The takeover, which remains subject to English Football League approval, was confirmed by the club on 17 April, two days before their defeat by Aston Villa confirmed Bolton’s relegation to League One.
