Bolton Picked For TV At Short Notice


Bolton’s match against Burton the weekend after next has been pushed back to Monday for TV coverage reasons.

Originally the match was scheduled for a standard 3pm kick-off on Saturday 4th September, but will now kick-off at 8pm on Monday 6th, and will be live on Sky Sports.

It was a late switch. The broadcaster’s original plan was to show Plymouth v Portsmouth that night, but that match has been postponed after enough international call-ups were made, and with both us and Burton making strong starts to the season, and Wanderers also scoring the most goals so far, and the fact we’re a big club in this division, let’s be honest, it became a good choice of pick. Being fair, Sheffield Wednesday v Sunderland may be an obvious pick but maybe there could be an international call-up problem there at some point.

Anyway, thoughts with those who had made plans for that Saturday…
