Striker hopes for similar impact

Striker hopes for similar impact

Dundee United striker David Goodwillie is hoping he can have a similar impact to another Scot who recently returned home.

The 24-year-old former United marksman is back on loan at Tannadice following a couple of difficult years south of the border with Blackburn Rovers.

However, fellow forward Leigh Griffiths left Wolverhampton Wanderers for a loan deal with Hibernian last term and eventually finished the campaign with an impressive 28-goal haul - and the league's player of the season accolade.

"I look at someone like Leigh Griffiths and how well coming back to Scotland on loan worked for him," Goodwillie told the Dundee Courier. "Hopefully, I can do the same. Watching how well he did last season made me think about my own situation.

"I saw how good it was for him and how he managed to get into the Scotland set-up," he added. "I have come back to United hoping things can work out like that for me."
