After Brentford's Sky Bet Championship match against Bolton Wanderers was called off on Saturday, a new date has still not been confirmed for the game. As per the statement released on Friday, the game did not take place on its schedule date - Saturday 27 April. The EFL has told Bolton that they expect the game to be played and Brentford FC is currently investigating ways to compensate fans that bought match tickets are arranged to attend the game.

With no new date yet announced, the EFL has today issued the following statement:

Discussions have continued with Bolton Wanderers, Brentford and other relevant parties throughout the course of the past 48 hours in regards to the rescheduling of last weekend’s Sky Bet Championship fixture.
