Losing start for Holmar

Holmar Orn Eyjolfsson has suffered a losing start to his loan spell at Belgian Jupiler League side KSV Roeselare.

Flanders-based Roeselare, also known as Roulers in French, went down to a 2-1 home defeat on Saturday and remain bottom of the 15-team standings.

Eyjolfsson, who has been handed the No6 shirt, completed the full 90 minutes on his debut as Roeselare recovered from a goal down, only to be denied a point by their mid-table opponents through Aloys Nong's 85th-minute.

The 19-year-old has joined Roeselare until the end of the Belgian season, having spent a short time on loan at League Two side Cheltenham Town earlier this term.

Roeselare, who have gathered 12 points from their 20 league matches so far, have eight fixture remaining in which to gain enough points to climb one place and avoid the end of season play-offs. KSC Lokeren, who sit 14th, also have 12 points.

Last month, the division's 16th club, RE Mouscron, were removed from the league due to ongoing financial problems.

Roeselare travel to KV Kortrijk in the Cofidis Cup on Wednesday 20 January before travelling to Lokeren for an important league game next Saturday evening.
