Bolton boss Dougie Freedman has confirmed long-suffering injury victim Stuart Holden has returned to full first-team training.

Holden has been restricted to just one appearance for Wanderers, since suffering a serious knee injury in a 1-0 defeat at Manchester United in March 2011.

Freedman says the 27-year-old is training on every second day, but admits the United States international is still a couple of months away from being in contention for first-team action.

"Stuart has been training one day on, one day off which is great," Freedman told the club's official website.

"The problem we have, and I do stress this to everyone, is that Stuart has been out for a long time and there will be absolutely no rush from the coaches’ point of view.

"He is training with us on every second day. He is looking nice and fit and his sharpness will come.

"He is such an enthusiastic lad and he is great to have around. I have tried to encourage Stuart to get around the place which is good for us.

"We are still a couple of months away from seeing Stuart, let’s not kid ourselves, but we are looking forward to that."
