The United States international midfielder is anxious to get his career at the Reebok Stadium up and running as the club try to stave off relegation.[LNB]He is also hoping a string of good performances will improve his chances of making the World Cup.[LNB]Holden, however, has had to bide his time since leaving Houston Dynamo - he previously had an unsuccessful spell at Sunderland.[LNB]Owen Coyle said: "Stuart will start some light training with the group on Friday. It has been frustrating for him as he is such a fit lad.[LNB]"He did well in America, had a break, then came here and did some training. Maybe he tried too hard, who knows?[LNB]"There is no doubt when he is fully fit he is a talented kid. He will get his opportunity like the rest of players."[LNB]Coyle was always confident Gary Cahill would remain at the club during the transfer window.[LNB]The Scot says it was one his terms when he moved from Burnley in December that the defender would not be moved on.[LNB]Cahill has attracted a number of suitors after breaking into the England squad.[LNB]However, he is now putting down roots at Bolton and Coyle said: "We have always been focused regarding Gary Cahill.[LNB]"I knew he wasn't going anywhere. That was one of the stipulations when I came here."[LNB]Bolton aim to improve their prospects on Saturday when they face Fulham, who defeated Portsmouth last night.[LNB]Coyle said: "What we have to do now is concentrate on the players we have. We need them to play to their maximum and elevate ourselves up the table."[LNB]Coyle explained why Portuguese striker Ricardo Vaz Te decided to stay at Bolton and not move to Hamilton on loan.[LNB]"It was an opportunity for him to go and play at a good level but he felt it was a bit rushed with it being transfer deadline day, " said the Bolton boss.[LNB]"Ricardo said he did not have enough time to think things through. He decided to stay put and that is fine by me."[LNB][LNB]
