Dan Holman to join Leyton Orient on loan from Cheltenham Town

Cheltenham Town striker Dan Holman is set to leave the club this month to join National League side Leyton Orient on loan for the rest of the season.

The 27-year-old returned to the Robins in December having been at Orient’s league rivals Boreham Wood where he made 14 appearances, scoring four goals, including their winner against League One club Blackpool in the FA Cup.

But now Gloucestershire Live are reporting that Holman is on the way out of Cheltenham again after not featuring in Gary Johnson’s squad on New Year’s Day despite the manager only naming five of a possible seven substitutes.

Holman had only been on the bench for their Christmas fixtures at home to Yeovil Town and Newport County.

Johnson signed Holman from Colchester United in January 2016 after the striker impressed on loan at Woking, scoring 14 times in 26 games.

He went on to net 30 goals that season which was enough to see him finish joint top scorer in the National League as Cheltenham won the title.

Upon their return to the Football League, Holman was riddled with injuries and struggled for game time, scoring just twice.

He will join Leyton Orient this month, who have enjoyed an upturn in form since the arrival of boss Justin Edinburgh and sit 19th, eight points above the drop.
