Yeovil Town have cut short the month's loan spell for Huddersfield Town's attacking midfielder Duane Holmes. The 19 year old had been due to spend two more matches with the Glovers, but was taken off just 29 minutes into his fifth appearance for the Glovers, at Loftus Road on Saturday against Queens Park Rangers.
Holmes made five appearances for the Glovers during his time at Huish Park, but struggled to complete 90 minutes in most games, and his output was gradually on diminishing returns. Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson was rather critical of his output during Saturday's match, and so his return to Yorkshire isn't a total surprise - a slight ankle injury may have also influenced Johnson's thinking. thinking. Holmes was already back on the Huddersfield training ground this morning, and so it would appear he packed his bags over the weekend.
In each of his five matches, Holmes started the opening 77, 73, 67, 73 and 29 minutes, being substituted in every game he started - generally tailing off in his effectiveness during the second half of matches - or in terms of Saturday's match at Loftus Road, not really being effective at all.
The Glovers will be able to recall Cardiff City loanee Joe Ralls to the squad that travels up to Wigan Athletic for Tuesday night's fixture, and along with Manchester United loanee Tom Lawrence they are two of the more obvious options to take the wide spots for the match.
