Bolton skipper Nolan: We wanted to test Arsenal, Walcott

Bolton Wanderers midfielder Kevin Nolan doesn't shy away from their physical approach. Reflecting on their defeat to Arsenal, Nolan told The Sun: "I have never seen anybody as quick as Theo Walcott in my life. I said to Jlloyd Samuel 'Give him a little kick and see if he comes back at you!'

"At the end of the day, it is a physical sport. We don't want to be like basketballers. We are in the gym four or five days a week to build ourselves up to try to stand up to challenges like that.

"We are in danger of losing that side - the roughing up of people."
