Bolton have confirmed their crunch Premier League match against Blackburn will go ahead on Saturday, while the club have also decided not to pull out of the FA Cup.
The Trotters postponed their trip to Aston Villa on Tuesday in the wake of midfielder Fabrice Muamba's cardiac arrest during their FA Cup tie against Tottenham last weekend.
Muamba remains in intensive care at The London Chest Hospital, but with the 23-year-old showing signs of improvement, his team-mates returned to training on Wednesday.
Bolton's doctor Jonathan Tobin confirmed the midfielder had been able to recount the dramatic events at White Hart Lane.
"I'm glad to say that the early signs of recovery have continued. I went to see Fabrice last night. I went in and he said 'Hi, doc'. I asked him how he was and he said 'Fine'.
Dr Tobin said the player had asked him what had happened.
"I explained to him what had happened,'' he said. "That's the sort of level of communication I have had with Fabrice.''
After working on Muamba for 48 minutes before his arrival at hospital, Dr Tobin confirmed the player continued to receive treatment for 30 minutes before his heart showed signs of activity.
''In effect he was dead in that time,'' Dr Tobin said. ''Fabrice was in a type of cardiac arrest where the heart is showing lots of electrical activity but no muscular activity.
''It's something that often responds to drugs and shocks. Now heaven knows why, but Fabrice had, in total, 15 shocks. He had a further 12 shocks in the ambulance.''
Having such an intimate knowledge of Muamba, once he arrived at the hospital on Saturday, Tobin went to a corridor and broke down as he feared the consequences of what had happened. It was the first chance he had to think. What happened previously was just a blur.
''I can't begin to explain the pressure that was there,'' Tobin said. ''This isn't somebody that's gone down in the street or been brought into A&E.
''This is somebody that I know, I know his family. This is somebody I consider a friend. This is somebody I joke with on a daily basis. As I was running onto the pitch I was thinking 'Oh my God, it's Fabrice'.''
The feelings were just as acute when Muamba grasped Tobin's hand for the first time. Indeed, the Zaire-born player's entire recovery has been described as ''miraculous'' by Dr Andrew Deaner, the cardiologist and Tottenham fan who leapt from his seat in the crowd and rushed onto the pitch to help.
''If you're going to use the term miraculous, I guess it could be used here,'' he said.
Dr Deaner went to visit the player after he had woken up and recalled that Muamba was able to make a joke even that early in his recovery process.
''I whispered into his ear 'What's your name?','' he said. The footballer gave his name. Dr Deaner went on: ''I said 'I understand you're a very good footballer'. And he said 'I try'.''
Rovers boss Steve Kean, who saw his side move six points clear of the relegation places with a 2-0 win over Sunderland on Tuesday, had said he would respect Wanderers' wishes if they decided to call off the clash, but Bolton have confirmed the match take place as planned, with kick off at 3pm on Saturday.
There was also uncertainty as to whether the players would be happy to return to White Hart Lane to play Spurs after the quarter-final was abandoned following Muamba's collapse, but manager Owen Coyle confirmed the club would fulfil their fixtures.
"We spoke together with the players as a group this morning and I talked with Fabrice's family last night," Coyle said. "Fabrice's father Marcel and his fiancée Shauna were keen that we fulfil our fixtures. Once the players knew this, there was no doubt in our minds that we would play the matches.
