Stuart Holden's return from a long injury layoff is one giant step closer to completion.
Holden started and played 78 injury-free minutes for Bolton's reserves in Tuesday's 7-0 loss to Fulham in his first game action since suffering a hairline condyle fracture on a tackle from Manchester United defender Jonny Evans in March.
The U.S. international midfielder was captain of Bolton's reserves for the match and is more than a month ahead of schedule in his return from the injury. Assuming everything goes according to plan going forward, Holden's potential return date to the first team could be Bolton's next game on Sept. 10, a home date against United.
