U.S. midfielder Stuart Holden, who has been sidelined with a broken leg since March 3, is closer to returning to training, but Bolton manager Owen Coyle says he won't jeopardize Holden's future to get him back in action before the end of the Premier League season on May 9.
"Stuart is coming on leaps and bounds from where he was when he picked up the injury,'' Coyle said. "He is getting stronger by the day. And although he isn't ready to join in with training today, he is getting closer.''
Coyle added that he won't rush Holden into any game that he isn't ready to play in. "We would love to have him fit and available to play a Premier League game before the end of the season," the Bolton manager added, "but he is going to have to be at 100 percent because I won't jeopardize his long-term future."
