Bolton’s first-team squad available for weekend clash with Nottingham Forest

Bolton’s first-team squad will be available for Sunday’s Championship clash with Nottingham Forest after going on strike over unpaid wages.

Wanderers’ game against Brentford, which was due to be played last weekend, was postponed after the squad refused to play in protest at a series of delays to wage payments.

But Bolton will face Forest on Sunday after the first-team players agreed to participate.

FourFourTwo Staff

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
