HUDDERSFIELD Town's Kallum Higginbotham is ready for a big week on the training ground as he tries to book a passport to the play-offs.

The 22-year-old frontman is desperate to face Yeovil at the Galpharm in Saturday’s final regular-season League I game after marking his return from a loan spell at Barnsley with only a second Town start in the 1-1 draw at Walsall.

“It was good to get the nod on Saturday,” said Higginbotham, signed from Falkirk by Lee Clark as the transfer window closed in January and sent to Oakwell by Simon Grayson in March.

“I got what I wanted at Barnsley – regular games – and it’s great that the gaffer saw enough to bring me back.

“Huddersfield Town are my club, and I’m more than happy to be here.

“I was pleased with my first-half performance, but in the second half, Walsall put us under pressure and I didn’t see too much of the ball.

“I’m disappointed at the result, but not too disappointed by my performance.

“We’ve got the play-off semi-final against MK Dons coming up and I want to be involved.

“That means hard work in training and earning another chance against Yeovil.”
