Loan ranger Adam Armstrong is armed, dangerous and ready to fire Rovers to promotion in the final 10 'cup finals' of the season.

The opener against Wigan on Sunday was Arma's fifth goal in his last six outings and ensured he's in the running for both the Sky Bet Player of the Month Award for February alongside boss Tony Mowbray.

He is also in with a chance of winning the Bristol Street Motors Player of the Month Award alongside fellow Geordie striker Danny Graham.

And speaking about the nominations and his time at Rovers so far, the 21-year-old says he is loving life in East Lancashire and enjoying a run in the team under Mowbray's stewardship.

“It’s been brilliant. The lads have really stepped up in the last few weeks, everyone chipping in with the goals and enjoying their football," he told to iFollow Rovers. "There is competition for places, everyone’s thriving off it and putting in good performances at the weekends.

“It was a hard one to take on Sunday after a brilliant first half. The second half didn’t seem to be and we gave away two sloppy goals, which we’ve looked at. We have to put that right for the future.
“Wigan have been up there all season and have a good side there. To be angry at just getting a point shows the standards that we’ve set. There are 10 cup finals left now.
“The goal came quickly and let us push on. It was a great pass from Bradley [Dack], I made the run and was confident that I’d score from the edge of the box. It was something I’d done with my left foot plenty of times before."
It's been an excellent start to life at Ewood Park for Armstrong, who linked up again with Mowbray in the January transfer window, having worked under the boss at Coventry City.
And despite finding the net with regular occurance and creating chances for his team-mates, Armstrong believes the best is still yet to come from him in a Rovers shirt.
“There is still more to come. You have to keep working hard every day and improving yourself ready for each weekend," he added. "Hopefully I’m doing that for the fans and everyone watching and I’m really enjoying it.
“I’m up and running and away now. I don’t set many targets aside from making sure the team gets three points every game."
