Bolton Wanderers boss Gary Megson is delighted with the response of skipper Kevin Nolan since his arrival.

Megson said: "Since I have been here, Kevin has been an absolute credit.

"He sets the standard on and off the pitch. He is a leader in every sense of the word.

"Everyone can see he is desperate to win. He wants his team-mates to win.

"It is not just his goals, it is his work-rate. He is always one of the top three workers in terms of effort. The more of those you can have at a football club, the better you will be."
