David Goodwillie: Wants to impress during spell at Blackpool

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."
