Aston Villa fans on Twitter have expressed serious worry to the reports that their game against Bolton on Friday might not go ahead.
The Bolton News are reporting that the Championship showdown, which is crucial to both clubs respective promotion and relegation survival hopes, is yet to be given the go-ahead.
The report states that the EFL advanced money to Bolton earlier this month so their fixtures against Ipswich and Middlesbrough went ahead.
But yet another encounter is now under scrutiny, with Phil Parkinson's side edging closer to League One and Villa only a few wins away from securing a playoff spot.
It is fair to say that the Villa Park faithful were worried by the news coming out of Bolton because it could have an impact on their promotion charge.
Here is a selection of Villa fans reacting on Twitter to reports that the Bolton match may not go ahead:

Dean Smith's side, who beat promotion rivals Bristol City last Saturday, are on an eight-game winning run and they will be favourites to make it nine if the Friday clash goes ahead.
Considering Bolton's current situation, relegation to the third tier of English football now seems inevitable.
