But while fans were hopeful of more tickets becoming available, owner Stewart Donald has confirmed that the club’s allocation will not be increased after Bolton refused their repeated requests for a higher volume of tickets.

Replying to a supporter on Twitter, Donald said: “We have asked a few times but unfortunately I believe it’s a no.”

Bolton are yet to win in League One this term, having overcome a turbulent summer which saw the squad stripped of a number of key players as a takeover of the club was completed.
