SHEFFIELD, England -- American midfielder Stuart Holden made his debut on loan at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, playing the opening 62 minutes before being substituted in a 2-1 victory over Barnsley in a second-tier English game.
Holden joined Wednesday from fellow League Championship side Bolton on Thursday as he looks to regain match fitness following a knee injury that required nearly two years of rehabilitation.
His last game was on Feb. 26 and he will be at Wednesday until April 24. Holden's contract at Bolton expires at the end of the season, but he has been assured of his future at the club.
