Adam readjusting his goal target

Seven in his last seven games suggests the loan Rover's confidence is sky high right now

Seven goals since signing in January for Adam Armstrong might seem a good return to most, but with nine games remaining, the Geordie striker is readjusting his targets.

After his first five games saw the Newcastle loanee still searching for his maiden strike in Rovers colours, the number 18 has since found the back of the net seven times in his last seven games, which started after bagging his first goal on his birthday against Oldham.
He picked up the Player of the Month award for February with that return and has already scored three goals in Rovers' two March matches, too.
So what's the secret to Armstrong's scoring success, particularly with five goals in his last four Ewood Park outings?
“We’ve been scoring in the last few games and I want to keep that form going," Adam begins, when talking to iFollow Rovers. "The atmosphere and everything about Ewood does me good. My confidence is high and I go into every game thinking I’ll score.
“I think the first goal at Blackpool pips the strike at Portsmouth. But it doesn’t matter how they go in, a goal is a goal. I have seven goals now and I’ll keep on pushing."
And with plenty of games - and no doubt opportunities - left for Arma between now and the end of the season, the loanee isn't letting up when discussing how many more strikes he wants.
“I said when I came here that I wanted 10 goals. Had you asked me if I’d take seven then I probably would have, but with nine games to go I think I can get a few more yet."

Rovers are next in action on Thursday 29th March against Bradford City. Kick-off against the Bantams is at 7.45pm, and tickets can be purchased by clicking here
