Tony Mowbray is confident that Adam Armstrong has plenty more to offer this season, and admits he's running out of ways to praise the attacker.

Armstrong is a man in fine form, having scored seven goals in as many games, including a superb brace against Blackpool last time out.

Speaking about the Newcastle loanee, Mowbray said: “I don’t know what else to say about Adam, to be honest!

“He’s a young lad learning the game, and I’m sure Rafa Benitez will see the video clips of all of the goals he’s scoring.

"He scored a fantastic goal against Wigan and two more brilliant goals against Blackpool.

"Goals like his second one on Saturday are never easy but he kept it down and put it into the corner.

"He also works extraordinarily hard, it’s not as though he’s a striker who just stands there – I’ll look forward to him scoring many more goals."

This isn't the first time Arma has hit form under Mowbray in League One, and the boss believes the youngster is more than capable of playing at a higher level.

"Arma won Player of the Month last month and just got his trophy this week. I had him at Coventry too, where he scored 20-odd goals in super fast time," he added.

"He’s a young guy who’s come from a top-flight club and, with all respect to League One, I'd suggest that with his attributes and quality, he’s better than League One.

"We’re delighted he’s here and delighted that he could finish the game off for us as he did at the weekend."
