Neil Lennon's Bolton adventure hit a new low with confirmation his players have not been paid their November wages and the strain showed as his struggling side were held to a 1-1 home draw by Brentford last night.

The result left Bolton three points adrift at the foot of the Championship table and their cash problems are deepening with the club £172.9m in debt.

The former Northern Ireland international and Celtic boss admitted: "What might happen is that investors might want to make a change, I have to be realistic about that. Results haven't been good and the buck stops with the manager."

It will be scant consolation to Lurgan man Lennon that, as things stand, Bolton could ill afford to pay out his remaining two years on his contract, were they to sack him.
