Bolton Wanderers' run at a potential place in Europe received a boost this weekend, and Stuart Holden once again played a role in making that happen.

Facing a midfield that included the likes of Wilson Palacios and Gareth Bale, Holden helped Bolton to a big 4-2 victory over Tottenham Hotspur with a 90-minute performance.The win gave Bolton 15 points through 11 games, putting the club just two points behind Newcastle for the Europa League spot and five behind Manchester City for the Champions League qualifying position. 

Far from vying for a potential place in Europe, Jermaine Jones and Schalke 04 took a step towards getting out of the relegation zone as they defeated St. Pauli, 3-0. Jones started in his return from an ankle injury and played 81 minutes.

Jones' international teammate, Clarence Goodson, played in his final game for IK Start, starting and going the distance in a 3-3 season finale draw with Haugesund. The match marked the end to Goodson's three-year stint with Start.
