Bolton fans are understandably buzzing as Stuart Holden makes a massive step in the recovery process. As we reported this morning, Holden is set to make a return to action with Bolton Wanderers' reserve side against Bury. The match is a Manchester Senior Cup clash and while there was speculation about this for the last month, it has now been made official.
Stu Holden's brother, Euan Holden, a defender for Stockport county, just tweeted the following:
Stu is set to get 45 minutes tonight in what is his first competitive action since last the Carling Cup match against Aston Villa in September, 2011. As fans of both Bolton Wanderers and the United States Men's National Team, we obviously wish Holden the best of luck tonight and most importantly, hope that he remains injury free.
Holden is not expected to make a full first team return until February at the earliest, it seems.
