Midfielder moves to League 1 club
Huddersfield Town midfielder Oscar Gobern has today joined League 1 Chesterfield on an Emergency Loan, initially until 19 November.
The 23 year-old hasn’t featured for Town’s First Team this season, but has recently completed three starts for the Under-21 side after recovering from a toe injury incurred during pre-season.
The Birmingham-born player joined the Club from Southampton in the summer of 2011 and made 25 appearances in the League 1 promotion campaign. Subsequently he played 42 Championship games over the next two seasons, taking his Town total to 50 starts and 17 substitute appearances – scoring twice.
Chesterfield, managed by Paul Cook, sit 10th in the League 1 table with 19 points from 13 games after their promotion from League 2 last term. Former Town Player of the Year Gary Roberts will be among Oscar’s new teammates at the Proact Stadium.
Huddersfield Town Manager Chris Powell said:
“We have a lot of competition for places in midfield at the moment with Jacob Butterfield, Conor Coady and Jonathan Hogg doing well and Radi Majewski and young Philip Billing impressing in training, so it makes sense for Oscar to leave on loan to play in competitive matches.
“He’s a bit behind the other players in terms of match sharpness because of the toe injury that kept him out of the start of the season, so this is an ideal move for him.
“Chesterfield is a good footballing team and should suit Oscar’s abilities, so I’m looking forward to seeing how he fares during his month in League 1."
