Rovers striker Goodwillie sees assault trial adjourned after witness problems
David Goodwillie's assault trial has been adjourned until later in the year following a difficulty with witnesses.
Adjourned: Blackburn Rovers striker David Goodwillie
The Blackburn Rovers striker was due to go on trial accused of assaulting a man in a city-centre street.
The 22-year-old Scotland international denies punching John Friel on the head and body in Glasgow's Queen Street on November 3 2010.
Goodwillie, moved from Dundee United to Blackburn last summer, submitted a not guilty plea to the charge by letter at a hearing at Glasgow Sheriff Court last August.
His trial was due to start at Glasgow Sheriff Court. However, his defence agent Paul McBride QC said there had been difficulty obtaining statements from the complainer and a witness, a process known as precognition.
It is expected that this will be resolved by Tuesday. The trial was adjourned until April 2.
