Matter Of Opinion

You have to convince some people you have what it takes. Perhaps absence will make the heart grow fonder
Kallum Higginbotham has returned to Scotland until the end of the season as he has agreed a loan deal with Motherwell. The Huddersfield Town striker is a former Falkirk forward whose loan spell at Carlisle ended in December. Higginbotham has been the victim of being signed by one manager and not being in the plans of the the next. Signed by previous Huddersfield manager Lee Clark after his man-of-the-match display in the Scottish Communities League Cup semi-final defeat by Celtic but since Simon Grayson took over the reins at the club, Higginbotham has been sidelined. He said: "I have gone down there and it's not worked out how I wanted it to. I have come up here to ignite my career and I'm thankful to the gaffer for giving me this chance. People have different opinions and I just think I have not been given a fair chance at Huddersfield. That's just my own opinion. Every time I have pulled on the shirt I think I have done myself justice. I need to be playing. This is a good chance to get some minutes, hopefully get some goals and get the confidence back like when I was playing at Falkirk. Then I'll have 12 months left on my contract and who knows?"
