VIDEO: Stuart Holden in action as he closes in on Bolton return

By Andrew Wiebe

Stuart Holden is back on the field for Bolton, even if he still waiting to step onto the pitch with the first team.

Holden played 65 minutes for Bolton's reserves against Oldham Athletic on Tuesday, a huge step in his quest to return from a knee injury that's kept him out for more than a year. Check out the footage above and comments from Holden after the match below. Needless to say, he's itching to get back but also understands it's still too early to know exactly what the future will hold.

“If all goes well from this then I don’t anticipate any reaction and I can now take the next step," Holden told Bolton's official website. "That will be playing a bit longer and then I think I will be ready to roll with the full 90 minutes. I am very close now. I have worked so hard to get to this stage and I don’t want to do anything now to mess that up."
