Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: Holmes, Moore, and more

17 Shares

Duane Holmes has continued to be a key player for Huddersfield Town during the EFL Championship season, but the American will need to deliver his best performance yet to help the Terriers reach their goal of earning a berth back into the English Premier League.

Holmes and Huddersfield face off with Nottingham Forest at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, knowing the winner will join Fulham and Bournemouth in next season’s EPL campaign. The two teams split the regular season series, with Nottingham Forest winning 2-0 in Huddersfield in September and Carlos Corberan’s side claiming a 1-0 result at the City Ground in December.

The 27-year-old Holmes has totaled 39 appearances in league play for the Terriers this season, scoring five goals and going the distance in two of his last four matches. After rejoining Huddersfield Town in January 2021, Holmes will seek his first ever promotion to the Premier League as the Terriers aim for their first bounce back to the top-flight in three seasons.
