Allardyce steps down

Breaking news from BBC sport:

Sam Allardyce has resigned as manager of Bolton with
immediate effect.
Allardyce has been linked with the manager's role at
Manchester City and refused to attend the press conference after Saturday's 2-2
with Chelsea.
He said: "This has been one of the hardest decisions I've ever
made but it's time for a new exciting era for Bolton under different
leadership."
Chairman Phil Gartside added: "I have reluctantly accepted the
decision. His reasons are private, we respect that."
