Millwall's fixture with Bolton on Saturday may not go ahead due to the financial crisis the Trotters find themselves in.

Greater Manchester Police have revealed that they are involved in the reclamation of unpaid debts with the club and failure to do so would mean a boycott of Saturday's event, leading to the fixture almost certainly being cancelled.

The news is the latest in a long line of issues at the financially troubled outfit with reports that players and staff didn't attend the club training ground on Monday due to unpaid wages.

Continuing Negotiations 

The cancellation of the fixture would be a last resort and a police spokesperson said they would work with the club to come to an agreement.

“We seek to be flexible and supportive in our approach, and we fully understand the important role football clubs play in our communities.

"However, we need to ensure public money is spent appropriately and recovered fully when police deployments are made in support of private businesses," said Chief Inspector Colette Rose.

"We will always work closely with all of our football clubs across Greater Manchester to ensure fixtures can take place in a safe and enjoyable manner, and we have a proven track record of this.

“As we are continuously working with our clubs, we will always try and find ways to work with them to meet the payments they owe us.

"In reference to Bolton Wanderers, we are continuing negotiations with the club to settle amounts owed to GMP for match day services.”

If the game were to get cancelled the FA would come down hard on the home-side, with a huge fine and possible points-deduction the most likely outcome, a punishment a side deep in relegation trouble could afford.
