The Scotland international joined the Tangerines on loan from Blackburn Rovers until the end of the season during the January transfer window.

Goodwillie has been farmed out for his second loan of the season, having just returned to the club after his spell with Dundee United, and is eager to play a sustained run of games again.

Since his move, the 24-year-old has made two substitute appearances for the club, the most recent coming in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forrest at Bloomfield Road.

Goodwillie told the Lancashire Telegraph: "I see it as a breath of fresh air to get new team-mates and show what I can do.

"All the lads have been great because I've settled in brilliantly so hopefully I can get my career back on track.

"It felt great to get a run out. I've been eager to get on and Fergie (Barry Ferguson) knows that so I'm glad he got me on when he did. I feel as sharp and as fit as I've ever been but it's up to the manager.

"I just have to wait for my chance and bide my time. He sees training and he picks his team from there so hopefully he will see me training hard and will put me in."

reat games with free flowing atracttive football featuring 4 top teams, showing it is possible to win in the right way entertaining fans at the same time. All the mourinho apologists if you only care about the result why watch the game at all or any game for that matter. It made me laugh how they all turned up on twitter to criticise pep when mourinho couldn't even get this far.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.
