Bolton Wanderers captain Kevin Nolan has slammed Manchester City's Vedran Corluka after he was booked in Saturday's defeat.

The yellow card means Nolan will miss the next two games and he said: "I thought the booking was a bit harsh, I felt Corluka made a bit of a meal of it - that's what these lads do when they come over here.

"We just get up and get on it with it - that's the English mentality but from him I sort of expected it.

"There's still 21 points to play for. This is not where we think we should be and we're deeply hurt finding ourselves in it."
