BOLTON are making a frantic late bid to talk their senior players to turn out on Saturday.
The crisis club face a new revolt with their remaining senior players unwilling to face Coventry because they have not had thirst back pay in full.
Instead Phil Parkinson will have to field a raw bunch of youngsters for the game unless late talks succeed.
The angry Bolton senior players were given money last week but some cash was deducted from the five months they were due.
Promises to make up that difference failed to arrive, leaving those who have been through the constant problems said they would not play.
Parkinson had to prepare with the renaming under-21 and youth team players in the latest setback to his plans.
It comes after Bolton plunged into a new crisis after their takeover by Football Ventures was suspended.
And the club have slammed overlooked owner Laurence Bassini for putting an injunction on the deal to save them.
