Stuart Holden has failed to get through a match with Boltonâ€™s U21s side upon his return from a lengthy absence.
The 28-year old American midfielder has been sidelined since sustaining an anterior cruciate ligament injury in last summerâ€™s CONCACAF Gold Cup while on the duty with the USA national team.
Holden went to ground in the 26th minute of the Trottersâ€™ clash with Evertonâ€™s U21s and immediately clutched his knee but the Championship club said he was able to run from the pitch.
A series of tweets from Bolton read:
Holden is down on the turf again after reaching for a loose ball. Doesn't look good. (26) 0-0 #BOLvEVE
And that's the end of Holden's night. Good news is he was back on his feet and able to jog from the field. (27) 0-0 #BOLvEVE
For those asking, Holden was able to run off unaided down the tunnel. Update as and when we have it. (38) 0-1 #BOLvEVE
Former Houston Dynamo star Holden, who was Boltonâ€™s Player of the Year in 2010/11, has figured just four times for the Whites in the past three years because of a serious knee injury sustained in March 2011 and his more recent problem which still seems to trouble him.
