Adam Armstrong has dedicated his Sky Bet Player of the Month prize to his team-mates after he picked up the February award for a number of fine performances.

A goal on his birthday against Oldham got the ball rolling for the Geordie hitman, who followed that up with two strikes - including the late winner - at Portsmouth.

He then bagged at home to Bury and also set up Danny Graham's first goal at Walsall and Elliott Bennett's beauty at AFC Wimbledon.

And whilst he's been one of the standout performers, the 21-year-old was quick to pay tribute to his team-mates are collecting the prize.

"It's brilliant. Personally, I think I've had a good month, but most importantly it's about the team," the Newcastle loanee began. "I think the team's done well, we're putting performances on every week, we're at the top of the table and we're trying to stay there.

"I'd like to dedicate this award to the players around me, who are producing for me and helping me get those goals, and everyone who has helped me through this month.

"I think we've got a great togetherness. It's been unbelievable since I've come here. Everyone makes you feel welcome and it's amazing to be around that sort of atmosphere. It's pushing us on in the games and in training every week. We're getting the three points, which is the main thing, and we've just got to keep going now.

"I'm a pretty level-headed guy, so I'm just getting on with the job that I've got in front of me and that's giving my all for Blackburn Rovers and I think I'm doing that at the minute and it's helping the team."

Adam will be looking to continue his fine form when Blackpool visit Ewood Park on Saturday, and you can see how he gets on by purchasing your tickets for the Lancashire derby by clicking here.
