Atletico Madrid security cock-up leaves Bolton fuming

Bolton Wanderers are furious over a potential security gaffe made by UEFA Cup opponents Atletico Madrid.

The itinerary for Bolton's trip - showing their flight number, arrival time, hotel and training schedule - was posted on Atletico's official website.

There are fears Bolton's programme could be interrupted and the British Embassy are investigating the incident.

Megson said: "This is very strange behaviour for a club of their status."

He added: "It obviously raises serious concerns regarding Bolton Wanderers players and staff ahead of this game."

The first leg, at the Reebok Stadium on 14 February, was a stormy encounter that saw Atletico's Sergio Aguero sent off for spitting before El Hadji Diouf scored to give Bolton a 1-0 win.
