Holden: 'Added bonus' for Bolton

MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Stuart Holden made his English Premier League debut for Bolton Wanderers in a 1-0 victory over visiting Wolves on Saturday. Afterwards, Bolton manager Owen Coyle praised the 24-year-old midfielder.

Bolton won on Zat Knight's goal -- its first in six league games -- and moved out of the relegation zone into a tie for 14th place with Sunderland. Four points separate the seven teams above last-place Portsmouth.

Holden started in Bolton's loss to Tottenham in the FA Cup on Wednesday and played well enough to justify his inclusion in the starting lineup for a second straight game. He had several chances but shot wide in the first half and had a shot stopped by Wolves goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann, his teammate on the U.S. national team, in the second half.

"I thought Stuart was great again," Coyle said. "He has a lot about him, a real hunger and a desire. He was at Sunderland as a young player and got released, went to America and took his game on. He could have stayed and played safe but he wanted to come back to England and prove himself. We will give him the platform. I am delighted how he has gone about it. He was a bundle of energy and his set-play delivery was terrific - it is an added bonus for us."
