Adam unfortunate, but the goals will come

The goals will come for Adam Armstrong if he keeps persevering - that's the message from Tony Mowbray to his on loan striker.

Adam saw Liam Roberts in fine form in the midweek win over Walsall, with it being almost a one-man-a-side battle at times during the clash.

And when Armstrong did finally beat the Walsall goalkeeper, the bar came to the visitors' rescue as Adam's last gasp free kick cracked against the crossbar.

It wasn't Armstrong's night, but Mowbray was thrilled with plenty of positive signs from the 20-year-old attacker.

“He’s shaking his head in there; you can see the talent he’s got, the dynamic nature of his movement when he’s on the ball," Tony reflected to iFollow after the game.

"He wants to shoot, he wants to score and he’ll have a day where he scores two or three. Ultimately, what matters is getting to feel the attention and adrenaline of the team.

"I'm just pleased he's getting chances. I'm pleased we're creating chances for him or he's creating them himself.

"He must have had a dozen shots in total. Some of them he creates on his own, some of them he gets slipped in.

"And if he keeps shooting, he will score. So we have to be confident and positive about Armstrong's performance tonight and know that some of those chances are going to go in in the coming weeks."

Hopefully he'll have more luck on his side down in Devon at the weekend for the trip to Plymouth Argyle.
