Last weekend saw Bolton Wanderers pick up a crucial three points away to Queens Park Rangers, a result that saw Steve McClaren sacked, and dragged them to within five points of safety.
This weekend sees them welcome the only side worse off than them in the league, in Ipswich Town, to the University of Bolton stadium amid a host of off-field problems.
And chairman Ken Anderson has offered an update on the club’s current situation with Wednesday’s court date looming.

The statement, published on the club’s official website, revealed that Anderson had apparently accepted an offer that does not see him make a big profit.
The Trotters currently sit second-bottom of the league with just seven games of the season left to play, but possible relegation is becoming less of a bother to fans with the threat of administration and possibly liquidation hanging over them.
The fans are understandably sick to death of the saga and just want any sort of sale possible…

This is embarrassing. Calling out the manager and players because they’ve not been paid, lost for words. Unbelievable.

Fair play to the person who handles the club Twitter. Hope you get paid soon.

So what he's said is "I've not kept up my end of the bargain, but I still expect the players to keep theirs".
Ken, you have breached contractual agreements between your company and your staff. Never call their commitment into question when yours is clearly non-existent.
