Stuart Holden’s return from surgery continues to inch closer to completion after the American midfielder played a full 90 minutes in the Bolton Development Squad’s 1-0 win vs. Bury in a Manchester Senior Cup match on Monday.
Returning to action after a recent harsh tackle threatened to present a setback, Holden returned to action and played well for Bolton in what was his first full match since returning to action after missing a year and a half while recovering from extensive knee surgery.
Holden is believed to be very close to returning to Bolton’s first team, though he may need another full match with Bolton’s reserve team before being back with the full squad. Either way, having him play a full 90 minutes is a positive step, even in a reserve match.
What do you think of this latest development? Anxious to see Holden play first-team soccer again?
