It has been an incredibly frustrating time for everyone connected to the club as owner Ken Anderson looks to sell the club.
Despite takeover talks ongoing, Anderson had promised the squad he would pay the wages by yesterday no matter what.
When that deadline went by without any payment, the Bolton squad released a statement where they criticised the owner for breaking promises.
However, the situation has now been resolved, with Sky Sports confirming that the payment has gone through.
Phil Parkinson’s men have managed to put the off the field issues behind them recently, with a crucial 1-0 over Millwall on Saturday keeping their chances of survival alive.
The side are back in action against Sheffield Wednesday tonight where they will look to close the five-point gap they have on 21st place.
It remains to be seen whether Anderson’s decision to pay has come about because of any update on the takeover.
This is the news that the Bolton squad will have been waiting for and they will be relieved it’s sorted for now.
They shouldn’t have been put in this position though and it’s awful from Anderson that he had once again failed to pay on time.
Now, the focus will be on the massive game tonight and it should allow Parkinson and the team to focus on the football, which they will surely be glad about!
