Bolton Wanderers have been handed a huge boost with news that standout centre-back Gary Cahill completed 90 minutes with the team’s reserves unscathed. The 24-year-old has been forced to the sidelines for seven weeks with a blood clot in his arm, but is now ready to return first-team action.

It was initially diagnosed that he may be out for the rest of the season, but his progress has proven he will be ready for the rigours of Premier League football sooner rather than later.

Cahill was in impressive form before his unfortunate lay-off, with many tipping the young centre-back as a legitimate World Cup hopeful. With Bolton still playing seven games before the end of the season, the centre-back still has a small shot at impressing England manager Fabio Capello enough to earn a slot to South Africa in June.
