(Reuters) - Bolton Wanderers' home Championship game against Brentford will now not take place and the visitors will be awarded three points on the basis of a 1-0 victory, the English Football League (EFL) said on Friday.

The fixture was initially scheduled for last Saturday but was called off when Bolton players said they would boycott their remaining games in the second-tier league over unpaid wages.
