The 23-year-old is a former Falkirk forward whose loan spell at Carlisle ended in December.

Higginbotham was signed by previous Huddersfield manager Lee Clark after his man-of-the-match display in the Bairns' Scottish Communities League Cup semi-final defeat by Celtic, but Simon Grayson soon took over the reins at Town.

"I have gone down there and it's not worked out how I wanted it to," said the former Rochdale player.

"I've come here to ignite my career and I'm thankful the gaffer gave me this chance.

"People have different opinions and I just think I've not been given a fair chance at Huddersfield. That's just my own opinion. Every time I pulled on the shirt I think I done myself justice.

"I need to be playing. This is a good chance to get some minutes, hopefully get some goals and get my confidence, like when at Falkirk.

"Then I'll have 12 months left on my contract and who knows?"

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
