For the first time in the club's 145-year history a competitive game has been canceled because the players refused to compete.
The squad released a statement earlier today to say they would boycott tomorrow's match and the fixture at Nottingham Forest a week on Sunday unless they were paid overdue wages from March.
Owner-in-waiting Laurence Bassini claimed he was going to 'save' the game by paying the money owed this evening but a club statement has now confirmed it has been postponed.
The EFL have issued the following statement.
"Following the failure of Bolton Wanderers to provide formal confirmation of its ability to meet its obligation to fulfil its Championship fixture against Brentford FC on Saturday (27 April), the game will not go ahead as planned.
"Earlier on Friday, the playing staff at the Club issued a collective statement confirming that they had decided not to fulfil the remaining fixtures of the season unless they received monies owed to them.
"As a result of these disappointing developments, the League has been forced to suspend Saturday’s fixture and under EFL Regulations, the Club is now deemed to be guilty of misconduct and will be referred to an Independent Disciplinary Commission.
"The EFL Board will now consider the matter of determining whether the fixture will be played or not.
"No further comment will be made at this time."
