Sky Bet League 2 One to Watch: Portsmouth's Danny Hollands

31 July 2014

Danny Hollands finally felt at home towards the end of the 2013/14 season when he turned out for his third club of the year, Portsmouth.

One appearance for Charlton Athletic and 18 for Gillingham yielded just one goal over the first seven months of The Football League campaign, before joining Pompey on loan in March, coinciding in an upturn in form for the south coast club.

In seven appearances for the Sky Bet League 2 outfit the midfielder netted five times in the final five games of the campaign, including a hat-trick at home to Plymouth Argyle on the last day.

That form saw Hollands nominated for the Sky Bet League 2 Player of the Month award, where he was pipped to the title by Fleetwood Town's Josh Morris.

Those six weeks on loan at Fratton Park was enough to persuade the 28-year-old to sign a two-year deal at Portsmouth after his Charlton contract ended following three years at The Valley.

Now, the former Chelsea trainee, who also counts Swindon Town, Bournemouth and Torquay United amongst his former employers, will be looking for stability and success at Portsmouth as they look to climb back up The Football League.
