Reading Football Club player makes a triumphant return by scoring against Tottenham.

Tom Holmes, the Reading defender, made his first appearance in nearly three months for Noel Hunt’s Under-23s team in their 2-2 draw against Tottenham Hotspur, where he even managed to score.

The 24-year-old, who graduated from the Academy, joined Luton Town in January but came back to his childhood club on loan until the season’s end. Having suffered a back injury against Leyton Orient in January, Holmes, playing as a centre-back, started for the youth side and played for 45 minutes.

Ruben Selles had stated on Friday that Holmes was fit for first-team selection after a week of training, but decided against including him in the matchday squad for Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Lincoln City.

In PL2, Spurs took a two-goal lead within the first 20 minutes, but Holmes scored before the half-hour mark, and fellow defender John Clarke netted an equaliser in the 90th minute to secure their position in the top 10.

Holmes will go back to Kenilworth Road over the summer after signing a long-term contract in the winter. Currently, the Hatters are in the Premier League relegation zone, albeit only on goal difference.
