Holden feels squad is big enough for two frontiers



Bolton midfielder Stuart Holden has revealed he believes Bolton’s squad can cope with the demands of an FA Cup run, as well as Bolton’s push for a Europa League place in the Premier League.

Bolton beat Fulham 1-0 away in the FA Cup fifth round on Sunday, just four days after defeating Wigan in their fourth round replay and look forward to a trip to St Andrews to play Birmingham in the quarter finals.

With Chelsea out, and United set to play Arsenal, there is a feeling that this year’s FA Cup is wide open again.

Bolton, now managed by former Burnley boss Owen Coyle, are also eight in the league, and are still in with a realistic chance of Europa League qualification.

“We can fight on two fronts,” said Holden to the Bolton News

“We’re a little bit thin at the back but when guys have been asked to fill in they have done well. Going forward and in midfield we’ve got a number of options.

“When we have made changes we have still been able to get results, and that gives us confidence and momentum to go and get more of them.”
