Kallum happy with role at Town

TOWN newboy Kallum Higginbotham is hoping boss Lee Clark allows him to play in his preferred position for the rest of the season.
The 22yearold arrived at The Galpharm Stadium on the final day of the January transfer window on a twoandahalf year deal from Scottish side Falkirk and started in the game which saw Town draw 11 with promotional rivals MK Dons.
Higginbotham featured up front, behind striker Jordan Rhodes, and although his best position, he believes, is on the wing, the former Falkirk player wants to remain in the ‘no.10’ position.
He said: “The manager just told me to go out and enjoy myself.
“And playing in the 10 position, it was my job to link the midfield and Jordan.
“Without trying to blow my own trumpet I thought I did that well. I’m happy with my debut and I’ll take a lot of confidence from it.
“I’ve played most of my career out on the wing, which is definitely my best position. When I was a winger my career was stopstart, but since Steven Pressley moved me into that position at Falkirk I’ve played every game and I think I’ve done well. Hopefully the gaffer will keep me there and I can push on.”
Meanwhile, Clark has revealed Gary Roberts could be available for selection in time for Huddersfield’s clash with Sheffield United on Tuesday night.
Roberts underwent a double hernia operation last month but has made excellent progress in his recovery.
Clark said: “He is working under the guidance of our fitness coach and everything so far indicates he will be back in the short term rather than the long term.
“We were originally talking in terms of three to six weeks, so we are now looking at three to four weeks and that’s fantastic.”
The Terriers travel to 15thplaced Leyton Orient tomorrow (Saturday) and victory there could see them back into an automatic promotion spot with 16 games remaining.
Town are now unbeaten nine outings, whereas Orient were defeated 10 by Colchester United last time out.
