Holden happy to get off the mark

Holden suffered a setback shortly after joining Wanderers in

January when he picked up an injury while on international duty

with the United States which caused him to miss most of the rest of

the 2009-10 campaign. But the 25-year-old has bounced back to play

in every league match so far for the Trotters this season and

finally broke his duck at Molineux. Holden put Bolton 3-0 up by

finishing a neat move involving Kevin Davies and Lee Chung-yong and

having expressed his relief at getting on the scoresheet, the

former Houston Dynamo player is now looking to add to his tally.

“Let’s hope it’s the first of many goals,” Holden told

www.bwfc.co.uk. “It was a well-worked goal with the passing

sequence that led up to it. Chungy made a great run, Davo found him

and all I had to do was finish it off. “It’s a bit of a weight off

my shoulders. I was putting a little bit of pressure on myself to

get off the mark because I do want to chip in with my fair share of

goals. It’s an aim of mine to pick up five or six a season because

it is important to share the goals around. Once you break your duck

then the confidence starts flowing but as long as the team wins

then I’m happy.”
