Bolton Wanderers will play their final match of the regular season in front of a full house at the Reebok Stadium. The Blackpool match, which is the be-all and end-all in terms of playoff implications, has been officially sold out. The club confirmed the big news in a tweet from their official account:
All available match tickets for this weekend’s game against Blackpool have now been sold! #BWFC— Official BWFC (@OfficialBWFC) May 3, 2013
The season's previous highest attendance was 22,292, coming at the 0-1 loss to Sheffield Wednesday on boxing day.
Speaking to the club's website, Dougie Freedman said of the fans:
"We've had a tremendous response from our supporters, who have been fantastic all season. They have made a big difference, and can do again tomorrow."
A win will (most likely) see Bolton Wanderers into the play-offs while a draw may be just enough. Either way it will be a tense affair. Either way, here's hoping for a party atmosphere at the end of the day.
As a reminder, the match kicks of 12:45pm (7:45am EST and 4:45am PST for those stateside).
