Bolton's final home game of the season against West Bromwich Albion has been moved to avoid a clash with the FA Cup final.

With the UEFA Champions League final being played on a Saturday, The FA had been forced to schedule the FA Cup final on the same weekend as the penultimate round of Premier League matches to allow players enough time to prepare for the European Championships in the summer.

In an attempt to avoid a clash with the FA Cup final, the 20 Premier League chairmen met on Thursday and agreed to switch all games to the following day.

Therefore, Bolton's game against West Brom, which was originally scheduled for Saturday 5th May 2012, will now take place on Sunday 6th May.

Should Wanderers reach the FA Cup final in May, the game against the Baggies is likely to be played the following Tuesday or Wednesday evening.

Roy Hodgson's side were eliminated from the competition after defeat at home to Norwich City in the fourth round last weekend.
