Yeovil Town loan is a good opportunity for young Holmes

Huddersfield Town boss Mark Robins is quite happy to let Duane Holmes join Championship strugglers Yeovil Town on loan until 23 March.

The 19-year-old has made the breakthrough at the John Smith’s Stadium this season, but only one of his 14 appearances in all competitions have come from a starting berth. Robins has now allowed him to join Yeovil on loan, although he has the option to recall the teenage midfield player after 28 days if he so desires.

“I’ve been keen to keep Duane in and around our squad because he’s made an impact,” the Terriers boss told the official club website. “But in terms of taking the next step, this move to gain further experience in the Championship is a very good one for him. I’ve spoken with Gary Johnson and he assures me that he will be given a good opportunity.

“We are looking forward to him taking the chance to get time on the pitch. Yeovil are desperately trying to get out of the bottom three and the experience will do him good. We hope that during his loan with them he progresses and gains more experience, enabling him to come back here with more knowledge on what is required at this level.”

Holmes could be set to debut for his temporary club at the weekend, when they take on Doncaster Rovers on Saturday. The Glovers are currently bottom of the second-tier, six points adrift of safety, and face a big task to avoid relegation to League One.
