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.

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
