Stuart Holden Injures Knee in Reserve Game

New, comments

Oh no, not again

USA TODAY Sports

Bolton Wanderers' American midfielder Stuart Holden lasted a mere 22 minutes of tonight's reserve game against Premier League side Everton before being forced to leave the field with an injured knee.

Holden, no stranger to knee injuries, was seen to run down the tunnel afterwards, which offers a mere chink of light in another bout of depressing news for the club, the fans and undoubtedly the player.

The 28-year old American, former Houston Dynamo player has been out since the end of the summer following a knee injury suffered in the US National Team's Gold Cup Final. Holden was out for six months after a leg break close to the knee joint in 2011 and missed a further six months through cartilage damage before rupturing his cruciate ligament last June.

That injury came hot on the heels of another serious knee injury that Holden suffered as a result of his PREVIOUS knee injury caused by that bastard Jonny Evans.

More news as we get it.
