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 said the game will not take place this week. The following statement has been issued:

The EFL has this morning confirmed that Bolton Wanderers’ suspended Sky Bet Championship fixture with Brentford will not be played this week.

The EFL Board will now determine on Thursday, 2 May, as to what arrangements are to be put in place in regards to the fixture and Bolton Wanderers will be instructed accordingly.

As previously advised EFL Regulations do provide for any League match to be played within four days of the end of the normal playing season (Sunday 5 May 2019).

The EFL reserves its position in relation to the Club not making the arrangements to play the game at the earliest opportunity and this matter will be brought to the attention of the Independent Disciplinary Commission the Club has been referred to at the appropriate time.

Brentford FC will continue to update fans on all issues surrounding this game as often as possible in the coming days.
