Stuart Holden: Reaction from the fans was a special feeling

Holden twice featured as a substitute in Wanderers' FA Cup run last month having spent the best part of two years on the sidelines due to serious knee problems.

And the 27-year-old USA international is happy to bide his time on the road to recovery.

"Things are going well," he told Bolton's official website. "The medical team have been keeping a real close eye on my progress. They have got me working to a very detailed and careful training schedule.

"To play the full 90 minutes at Euxton was great. It was another huge step forward for me. I felt good out on the pitch and to play the full game was great. Now I just want to keep on track and keep progressing.

"It was good to be involved in the first team games against Sunderland and Everton. The reception I got from the Bolton fans at both Sunderland and the Reebok was a really special moment for me - it was a great feeling.

"We are sticking to the plan and making sure all the boxes are ticked and that I am at 100 per cent."
