New Rovers capture Adam Armstrong is eager to pick up where he left off with Tony Mowbray after linking up with his former manager for a second time in his career.

The duo worked together at Coventry City a couple of years ago, with Armstrong scoring 20 goals for the Sky Blues during a pretty successful season at the Ricoh Arena.

And now the pair are reunited, Armstrong admits he didn't have to think twice about working with the boss once again.

"I knew Tony from Coventry," Armstrong explained to iFollow.

"It worked well with him and his backroom staff. I know what he's all about and know what a good manager he is. I've had a chat with him and I can't wait to get started here.

"I was only a young kid when I was at Coventry, he really helped me and we were pretty successful together there, with the season going well.

"After Coventry I thought I'd go back to Newcastle and maybe not see Tony again. But you know what football's like and it's come round again with the two of us."

And Adam's aiming to be in amongst the goals under Mowbray's guidance once again, and believes he'll fit in to the Rovers' style of play.

"Tony likes attacking football - that was his style at Coventry. It suits me as I'm very quick and want to score goals and help the team."

You can see Adam's potential Rovers debut this Saturday for the huge clash at Ewood Park against Shrewsbury.
