Bolton captain Nolan: I get along with Lee

Bolton Wanderers skipper Kevin Nolan insists he has no problems with manager Sammy Lee.

He told the Daily Mail: "I'm not old enough to have seen him play, but I'd like to have his medals. He's a lovely fella, a fantastic man and a fellow Scouser. It's not been the best of starts for him, as it hasn't for Martin Jol at Tottenham. People are under pressure now if you lose two games. Alex Ferguson would be under pressure if he lost two at Manchester United.

"When you're down at the bottom, certain things do go against you. But we believe we can beat any side at home. Beating Chelsea would have the confidence flooding back.

"We're not going to worry about what people are saying outside the club. It's what's inside the club, sticking together and making sure we get out of trouble together."

He adds quickly: "It still hurts to lose. I don't like losing ... but I don't think we'll be losing for long."
