Arma: A packed Ewood will give us a lift

Striker can't wait for Saturday to come, with Oxford visiting Ewood Park this weekend

Adam Armstrong says playing in front of a full house at Ewood Park on Saturday will only give the players a boost heading into the last game of the season.

Oxford's visit will see more than 25,000 packed into our home, and the loan striker can't wait for the match to come.
 
The 21-year-old has played a crucial role in Rovers' season, bagging nine vital goals since arriving in the January transfer window.
 
“I said when I came here that I wanted to get promoted and it’s been a nice relief to get there in the end," the striker told iFollow Rovers.
 
“I’ve won tournaments with England but have never achieved anything at club level. Every player wants to win promotions and to get one already at my age is brilliant.
 
“We’ll have a good day, hopefully the sun will be out but we have to do our job and hope things go our way over in Doncaster.
 
“With over 25,000 packed into Ewood it’ll only give all the lads a lift. There will be a real buzz around the place but it’ll be a tough game."
 
It's the first time we've spoken to Arma since promotion was sealed at the Keepmoat Stadium last month, so, how did it feel? We'll let the man himself explain.
 
“It was nervous at Doncaster after going off, but fortunately Charlie [Mulgrew] came up with the goods and we won the game," Adam added.
 
“I actually missed the final whistle as just before I left the dugout to go to the toilet. When I came back, the final whistle had already blown!"
