MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Stuart Holden is back in training with the first team at English club Bolton Wanderers as he continues his rehabilitation from a knee injury that he first suffered in a challenge from Manchester United's Jonny Evans in March 2011. But Bolton manager Dougie Freedman stressed that it would still be a couple of months before Holden would be playing.

Said Freedman said: “Stuart has been training one day on one day off which is great. The problem we have, and I do stress this to everyone, is that Stuart has been out for a long time and there will be absolutely no rush from the coaches’ point of view. He is training with us on every second day. He is looking nice and fit and his sharpness will come. He is such an enthusiastic lad and he is great to have around. I have tried to encourage Stuart to get around the place which is good for us. But we are still a couple months away from seeing Stuart, let’s not kid ourselves, but we are looking forward to that.”

A lot has changed since Holden played his last game for Bolton in September. It was relegated to the League Championship, and Owen Coyle, the manager who signed him, was fired.

Bolton has lost only one of six games since Freedman replaced Coyle, but it is tied for 17th place in the 24-team League Championship.
