Bolton Wanderers supporters are to stage a protest against club owner Ken Anderson on Monday evening, and here's a reminder of how you can get involved.

Gathering from 7pm at the Nat Lofthouse memorial statue, fans are invited to bring banners, posters and their voices, before embarking upon a lap of the University of Bolton Stadium at 7:15pm.

Boosted by the attendance of John McGinlay, who last week saw his media access revoked by club officials, your actions will be captured by the Sky Sports television cameras and broadcast to the watching nation - who have reacted with disbelief at the actions of Anderson over the past fortnight.

Upon completing a lap of the ground, fans will reconvene in the vicinity of the Nat Lofthouse memorial statue and stadium entrance, where you are urged to voice your displeasure before heading your own separate ways in anticipation of kick-off in the Championship clash with West Bromwich Albion.

Wanderers officials last week issued safety advice for those wishing to take banners and other objects into the ground, with an increased security presence at turnstiles meaning supporters are encouraged to arrive early.

Once in the ground itself, the actions and nature of any protests are the responsibility of each and every individual and we urge you to remain on the legal side of the law - allowing players to focus on the job at hand once the match has started.

Original plans for a mass walkout in the 58th minute have been abandoned following negative feedback.

Anderson recently stated any protest would only succeed in bringing 'negative publicity' to Bolton Wanderers, before changing his stance in another chairman's column where he made it clear that 'all publicity is good publicity'.

With his words in mind, Burnden Aces, in collaboration with Lion of Vienna Suite, Trotters Blog, The Burnden Way and fans of Bolton Wanderers Football Club, hope to see you at the Nat Lofthouse memorial statue from 7pm on Monday evening.

Be loud, be proud and do what is needed to raise awareness of the sorry state that is Bolton Wanderers Football Club.
