Rovers are delighted to announce that striker Adam Armstrong has won the Sky Bet League One Player of the Month award for February.

Armstrong played a key role in the memorable month, bringing pace and directness to the Rovers attack, which resulted in him scoring four goals and claiming two assists.

The on-loan striker opened his account for the club with a goal on his 21st birthday in the 2-2 draw at home to Oldham and then demonstrated the confidence of youth with two cool finishes in the 2-1 victory at Portsmouth.

He was on the scoresheet again in the 2-0 victory over Bury, before setting up goals for Danny Graham and Elliott Bennett in the away wins over Walsall and Wimbledon.

The 21-year-old fought off the challenge from Plymouth Argyle attacker Ruben Lameiras, Rotherham winger Joe Newell and Southend full-back Jason Demetriou for the top player prize.

Boss Tony Mowbray was nominated for the Manager of the Month award following four wins from six games in the month, but lost out to Plymouth's Derek Adam
