BREAKING NEWS: Bolton Wanderers have been handed a suspended points penalty by the EFL, as revealed by Mike Keegan of the Daily Mail.

He states:

”Bolton Wanderers will not immediately be docked points for failing to fulfil fixtures, Sportsmail can reveal.

The League One side will be handed a five-point penalty – but crucially the punishment will be suspended, in what will be viewed as a major boost for the club.

In news that will go down well in Bolton, but perhaps less so at EFL headquarters, it is understood that an independent panel has agreed that they will be docked five points but that penalty will be suspended.

Bolton, who will remain 12 points from safety, will also be fined – with a portion of that part of the punishment also suspended.”

Having feared the worst, it seems like Wanderers now have a real shot at staying in League One.

Up the positive points, piss boiling Whites.
