American midfielder Stuart Holden will make his official return from a broken leg on Tuesday, as he has been selected to start for Bolton in their Carling Cup clash against Aston Villa.
Holden has been sidelined for six months since suffering a broken leg on a studs-up challenge from Manchester United defender Johnny Evans. The injury forced him to miss the remainder of the Premier League season and the summer's Gold Cup with the U.S. national team.
Holden was voted Bolton team MVP despite the missed playing time after emerging as one of the top midfielders in the English Premier League. Now, with the injury behind him, Holden can work toward building on that success, as well as re-establishing himself as a U.S. national team player.
