Javi Deadline Extended For Wanderers

Last updated : 07 January 2004 By Mark Heys
Bolton Wanderers should know by 5pm tonight if they are able to field new loan signing Javi Moreno against Manchester United after the Football Association extended the deadline for the players registration due to a public holiday in Spain yesterday.

The Trotters originally had to rush the paperwork through at noon yesterday but the FA have been lenient as they learned that Spain celebrated a holiday yesterday which meant the player wouldn't have been able to participate due to Office staff not being available to process the details.

Now the club are awaiting confirmation for the player to play against the Red Devils tonight, if he gets clearance then it's expected he will be amongst the substitutes but if not it will be a similar side which drew with Leicester City just over a week ago.
