Bolton will have to play their next two league matches behind closed doors after the club's safety advisory group decided the Championship strugglers could not guarantee fans at the University of Bolton Stadium would be safe.
The safety group, which is comprised of representatives the local council, police and emergency services, informed the English Football League on Tuesday that it has placed a prohibition notice on the club under the Safety of Sports Grounds Act 1975.
The shock news comes a day before the club are due in the High Court, facing a winding-up petition from HM Revenue and Customs for £1.2million in unpaid tax and other debts.
The club told the group it could not address its concerns until after the court hearing, which gave the safety experts little choice but to rule that all supporters will be prevented from entering the ground for the home games against Ipswich on Saturday, April 6, and Middlesbrough on Tuesday, April 9.

Bolton have announced that Dean Holdsworth has resigned from his role as director of football.
The former striker, who played for Bolton from 1997 until 2003, led the Sports Shield consortium that took over the club in March this year for £7.5million, preventing it from liquidation.
He will remain as a shareholder.
A statement read: "Bolton Wanderers can confirm that Dean Holdsworth has resigned from his role as director of football.
"The club will be making no further comment on the matter."
Holdsworth released a statement to the Bolton News, which read: "As of yesterday, I ceased to be employed by BWFC as director of football but wish to confirm that I remain as a shareholder and director of Burnden Leisure Limited with Ken Anderson.
"I remain fully committed to the club and am excited by the prospect of a successful new season."
Bolton begin life in League One following their relegation last season, with Phil Parkinson taking over as manager.
