Stu Holden and David Wheater both started for Bolton Wanderers in a U21 match against Manchester City. Bolton had gone up ahead early through Chris Lester before City equalized but that's not at all important. There are multiple reports from Hyde's ground, where the match is being held, that Stu Holden took a rash tackle and left the match. Hopefully it's not bad and this is just a precaution.
Holden down injured for a minute after a rash tackle, walked to sideline and lies down. Looks bad guys I'm afraid #bwfc— Dan Atherton (@dan_athers) February 1, 2013
Holden visibly frustrated as another bad tackle ends his evening. Shoe and sock off, walking round pitch to changing room. Gutted #bwfc— Dan Atherton (@dan_athers) February 1, 2013
32 mins #BWFC sub Oscar Threlkeld comes on for the ever injured Stuart Holden— MCFC_EDS_U21s (@MCFC_EDS_U21s) February 1, 2013
That last tweet does have a photo of Holden walking off on the sideline.
Hard to say guys, he was obv annoyed, threw sock away etc. Walked off by himself somewhat gingerly. Must wait for news now #bwfc— Dan Atherton (@dan_athers) February 1, 2013
It was a reckless front-on tackle where Holden got to ball 1st, looked like studs could've caught top of his foot. Could be metatarsal #bwfc— Dan Atherton (@dan_athers) February 1, 2013
We'll update as more news comes in but we're hoping for the best.
One more updated from another fan at the ground:
Just spoke to Stu. He said he was OK. The whole of #bwfc breathe a huge sigh of relief!— Gaz E (@Enty39) February 1, 2013
There have been a lot of positive signs though and hopefully it is nothing more than a scare.
