Nolan: More to Bolton than Allardyce
Skipper Nolan, 25, locks horns with his old mentor for the first time since his exit when Bolton host Newcastle on Saturday.
And he is predicting a bright future under successor Sammy Lee.
Nolan said: "Seven years with Sam was fantastic but it's all about us as players now.
"Under Sammy and his staff I think we can prove that."
