Bolton captain Kevin Nolan has praised the impact made by team mate and fellow Academy graduate Joey O'Brien since the Irishman cemented a place in the Wanderers starting line up. O'Brien made his Premiership debut against Everton on the final day of the 2004-2005 season and has since become a regular feature in the Bolton starting eleven by playing in an unaccustomed position of right-back.

Nolan has tipped the 19-year old to become a mainstay of the Wanderers team for many years to come and says that the Dublin-born star has every attribute needed to be a success in the top flight.

"His passing is fantastic, He's got good aerial ability, very strong in the tackle and I think he has a bit of everything to be honest. I've no doubt he'll be playing for the Wanderers for a long time and around The Premiership for a long time - he's a fantastic lad."
