Holy's Cambridge Loan Move Confirmed
Tuesday, 26th Oct 2021 16:04

Town keeper Tomas Holy's emergency loan to Cambridge United has been confirmed, TWTD having revealed the Czech was set for a spell with the U's this morning.

Holy will be with Cambridge for an initial seven days as cover for their first-choice Dimi Mitov, who was forced off during the first half of Saturday’s 4-1 defeat at Shrewsbury and has been sidelined for seven days having suffered a concussion.

Youngster Kai McKenzie-Lyle was handed his league debut from the bench against the Shrews having previously made only two Papa John’s Trophy starts. Another slightly more experienced keeper Will Mannion was loaned out to Havant & Waterlooville last week.

Holy will make his debut - and perhaps only appearance - for Cambridge in tonight’s game at Doncaster Rovers.

The 29-year-old is currently the Blues' third-choice keeper behind Christian Walton and Vaclav Hladky. The former Gillingham man has made three appearances for Town this season, all in cups.

I don't get this rule. Why not just let the young guy have his chance? It's good for Holy to have a competitive game, but I wouldn't be happy if I were a Cambridge fan.

From what i have seen this season there is very little to choose between our three keepers possibly Walton just about shading it.

Walton looks a much better keeper that Holy or Hladly who are both pretty terrible.

Walton the pick of the 3 nothing between the 2 Czechs who are average at best!

The lad at Cambridge is obviously not ready otherwise the coaching staff who see him day in and day out would have selected him. The defender's have a big say in who they have confidence in between the sticks. Don't forget they still need another keeper on the bench who's to say it might be Holy.

I fear for Cambridge.

Think Holy is too tall and Hladky lacks confidence. Walton seems ok but I haven't seen him live yet. Just booked tickets for the west stand for Oxfords visit. Hardly any seats available. Big crowd me thinks! COYB.

Not saying Holy is tall, just that he makes Peter Crouch look like a dwarf.

According to reports had a very good game. It's not easy performing behind a defence that's not settled as all three keepers have found out. Bart struggled in his last season because of this and now he's one of the best keepers in the championship.

The Doncaster equaliser was a screamer, see here!
A couple of saves from Holy in the highlights too.
