African starlet set for Bolton trial

Published Add your comment

Zimbabwean striker Matthew Rusike is set for a trial at Bolton Wanderers this summer.

The Under-23 international will unto test with the Premier League side after turning out for Jomo Cosmos this weekend.

Rusike is currently trying to gain a visa to enable him to travel to England.

Former Zimbabwe captain Benjani Mwaruwari took a similar path to playing in Europe following a spell at Jomo Cosmos before joining Portsmouth.

Rusike is the second Zimbabwean international to recently attract attention from Europe, following Arshford Gutu's three-week spell in Bulgaria.

Meanwhile, Bolton manager Owen Coyle has warned injured star Stuart Holden to listen to medical advice rather than rush his comeback.

He told the Bolton News: "Stuart's like a kindred spirit, so positive in his outlook and in everything he does. I love that about him.

"He's optimistic and he is improving no doubt about it but we have to make sure we pick the right moment to bring him back and not push him at all.

"Stu has targeted the middle of September. My medical lads are a wee bit more wary. If we get him back at that point I'd be thrilled, but we might just have to be a bit patient."
