Stuart Holden scored his first goal abroad while Michael Bradley netted his second of the season in their clubs respective wins on Saturday.

Holden scored the winner in Bolton Wanderers' 3-2 triumph over Wolves, hitting a one-timed shot into the open net after American goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann was forced out of position. Holden also assisted on John Elmanders' goal in the second half.

Bradley found the back of the net for Borussia Moenchengladbach in its 4-0 win over FC Cologne, a win that helped the club in its fight against relegation. The goal came in the second half when Bradley's shot from outside the penalty area took a deflection, wrong-footing Cologne's goalkeeper.

You can see both of the goals after the jump.
