Following Bolton's threat to report Middlesbrough to The Football League, the Teesside club have issued a statement in response.

Wanderers travel to the Riverside Stadium on November 30, 2013, with travelling supporters being charged £27 for a matchday ticket. In comparison, due to a local promotion, Boro fans will be able to see the game for just £12.

Bolton officials believe the same discounted price should be offered to away supporters, but Boro insist they are not breaking any rules.

A statement read: "We felt it was appropriate to arrange a special promotion for our game with Bolton Wanderers on Saturday November 30 as it will be the first home fixture for our new Head Coach, Aitor Karanka. As such it has particular significance for our own fans.

"Under Football League rules, each club is entitled to run up to four "local" promotions each season in which home supporters are offered a discounted ticket price. The Bolton match falls into this category.

"Away supporters will be charged at our standard matchday rate, which is competitively priced with most Championship clubs. Please be assured that it also reflects the expected ticketing price class that will be set for our supporters when they visit the Reebok Stadium on New Year's Day."
