Stuart Holden's latest comeback has hit a minor snag.
Holden will miss the next six weeks after electing to undergo a follow-up surgery on his knee.
"Our prime concern has always been Stuart's welfare and his long-term health and fitness," Bolton manager Owen Coyle said on the club's official website. "It was looking likely that the operation could be scheduled for next summer, but after follow-up consultations with the specialists we have brought the date forward."
Holden played in three reserve games and made a 90-minute appearance in the Carling Cup in his first action for Bolton since returning from a severe injury suffered in March against Manchester United.
