We can't wait for Thursday to arrive

Adam itching to get back into a match situation when Bradford visit Ewood Park on Thursday night

Striker Adam Armstrong says the team cannot wait to get back in the swing of things when Bradford City visit Ewood Park on Thursday evening.

Following postponements against Gillingham and Doncaster, it will be 19 days since Rovers last played by the time the teams run out from the tunnel on Thursday.
 
And Armstrong admits it's been "horrible" to go that long without getting his boots on and participating in a game, particularly after the run of form he's been on.
 
“It’s been horrible for us to be honest because our main aim has been to play games and to be winning matches," he said to iFollow Rovers.
 
“We’re flying in the league and we want to keep on top of things. We’ve seen Shrewsbury and Wigan winning games. We can’t wait for Thursday now and will be looking to earn those three points.
 
“The times we have played on Sky, I think we have won every game, so we’ll look to keep that run going and perform for the Sky cameras again."
 

The bigger picture is of course promotion and Arma says everyone has bought into the same mentality heading into the remaining nine games of the season - seven of which come in a key April - for Tony Mowbray's side. 

“It’s all down to us now. We have to win every game now and that’s our mindset for the rest of the season," the 21-year-old added. "If we win all our games then we get promoted automatically. We’ll put every effort in to get there.
 
“We’ve had two weeks without a game, with players on international duty. We’re pretty much all back together now and are all looking forward to Thursday."
 
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
