Bolton Wanderers players have sought the advice of the Professional Footballers' Association, as they continue to wait on the payment of February's wages.

Wanderers owner Ken Anderson had promised players - through his associate, Paul Aldridge - that overdue salaries would be settled by close of business on Monday if a takeover had not been concluded beforehand.

A balance reported to be in the region of £600,000 is owed, with Anderson once again disrupting preparations for an important league fixture against Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night.

A statement from the players, published by The Bolton News, read: "We, as a group of players, feel extremely let down by Ken Anderson once again.

"We were promised on Friday that our wages and the staff wages would be paid to us by today (Monday). Unfortunately, that hasn't happened. With no idea of when our wages will be paid our only option is to ask the PFA to take it up with the EFL and start proceedings on our behalf.

"Hopefully the issue gets resolved very soon so we can all move forward as a group and put all our focus into winning games of football and staying in the league."
