It has been a terrible season so far this season for the long suffering supporters of Bolton Wanderers. The club have just 14 points and have won just one match in the Championship this season.
With the administration threatened club around £180 million in debt and up for sale there has been very little to cheer around The Macron Stadium in the past few months.
Wanderers Manager Neil Lennon has been limited to trying to improve the quality of the squad by signing players on free transfers with several players who he has signed at the end of their playing careers.
This week the club hit a new low when an unhelpful story about Lennon’s private life was published in the media before the club were placed under a transfer embargo after breaking Financial Fair Play rules and regulations.
If the loyal 1,800 Wanderers fans who travelled to relegation rivals Rotherham United yesterday didn’t think matters could get much worse then they were proved wrong.
Goals from Grant Ward, Danny Ward, Joe Newell and Jonson Clarke-Harris gave The Trotters a 4-0 battering, a result which now leaves the club 7 points from Championship safety.
