Bolton skipper Nolan: Anelka answered his critics

Nolan said: “A lot of people have got on his back, asking: ‘Is he right for Bolton? Is he a good buy?’

“Well, I think they got their answers in the Arsenal game. I know one match doesn’t prove anything but we believe that was just a taste of what Nicolas can do for us.

“Coming back here from Fenerbahce was always going to be difficult. We knew it would happen for him sooner or later and there’s lots more to come.”
