Fabrice Muamba had a comfortable night in hospital, while Bolton have revealed Saturday's game with Blackburn will go-ahead.
Muamba remains in intensive care but the fact that he can move his arms and legs and has been able to answer questions from his family members, is a huge step in the right direction.
Wanderers boss Owen Coyle has also been able to hold a short conversation with him and although there is some way to go before he is out of danger all the signs are positive.
A joint statement released by his club and Barts and the London NHS Trust read: "Fabrice Muamba has had a comfortable night in the intensive care unit at The London Chest Hospital, where the medical team is continuing to monitor his progress.
"Fabrice's family has asked us to thank everyone again for their thoughts and prayers and for the continued messages of support, from which they draw great strength. They would also like to thank the media for continuing to respect their privacy."
This evening's game with Aston Villa was postponed and it looked as though the game against Rovers could go the same way. However as Muamba's condition improves it looks as though the game will get the nod.
