Bolton Wanderers have been given more time to pay a £2.2 million tax bill after lawyers told a specialist judge in the High Court that "significant progress" had been made in plans to sell the club.

Tax authority officials have asked for Bolton - who slipped to the bottom of the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday after losing 2-1 at Leeds - to be wound up after complaining that the club had not paid a £2.2 million bill.

But Registrar Clive Jones refused to grant a winding-up application by HM Revenue and Customs at a High Court hearing in London on Monday.
