Higginbotham, 22, who has made five appearances for Barnsley since joining them in mid-March, will go straight into Town manager Simon Grayson's plans for Saturday's clash at Walsall.

"We allowed Kallum to go out to get games and time on the pitch at a good level and he has done well during his time at Barnsley, so the loan has totally served its purpose," Grayson told Town's official website.

"He will now return to us with some form and first-team action behind him and I'm keen to see what he can do for us in the run-in to the play-offs.

"Kallum will return to the squad and compete for a starting place. It's a great time to come back in and there's a wonderful opportunity for him to make a real difference and impact.

Higginbotham joined Huddersfield on the final day of the January transfer window from Scottish First Division side Falkirk for an undisclosed fee and made two appearances before his loan switch to Barnsley.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
