Nolan Suspended For Villa Tie

Last updated : 14 January 2004 By Mark Heys
Kevin Nolan will be missing for the Bolton's Carling Cup Semi Final Second Leg tie against Aston Villa in a fortnights time after picking up his fifth booking of the season during the weekend win over local rivals Blackburn Rovers.

Fellow midfielder Per Frandsen is already ruled out of the first leg tie next week for the same reason so it leaves Trotters boss Sam Allardyce painfully short on midfield options given the fact that Jay-Jay Okocha will already be missing due to international duty.

Both legs of the cup tie will be shown on SKY Television.
