BARNSLEY have signed striker Kallum Higginbotham on loan from Huddersfield Town until the end of the season.

Higginbotham played for Reds boss Keith Hill when he was manager of Rochdale - and joins a side in desperate need of a goal having not scored in their last four league fixtures.

Salford-born Higginbotham, aged 22, has played just twice for the Terriers this season and is understandably keen to get some regular first time football.

A former Oldham Athletic trainee, Higginbotham played 69 times for Rochdale between 2007-2010, with two loan spells at Accrington Stanley in amongst that period.

In June 2010 he signed for Falkirk on a two-year deal and went on to score seven goals in a 50 games playing spell in Scotland, before signing for Huddersfield in January of this year on a two-and-a-half year deal.
