Arma's 10-goal target...

The versatile forward wants another goal at least in the next two games to reach double figures for the season

25 April 2019

Rovers forward Adam Armstrong is aiming for another goal at least in the next two games to push him into double figures for the season.

The 22-year-old has been a constant this term, appearing 46 times for the club in all competitions after returning on a permanent deal from Newcastle United.

He's found the net on nine occasions this term, which is the same figure as last season in blue-and-white, and is eager to beat that tally this time around.

“I think I’ve learned this season, playing out wide a lot more and experiencing different types of defenders. I’ve really enjoyed this season," he told iFollow Rovers.

“I’ve enjoyed playing wide under this gaffer. He gives me the freedom to stay out wide and beat players, which I think I’m good at. Hopefully I can keep doing that.

“You get a lot more of the ball out there and can score and create chances.

“It’d be nice to reach double figures for goals this season, especially playing out on the wing."

And on the campaign as a whole, Arma believes Rovers should be pretty pleased with how things have worked out in their first term back in the second tier.

“We had a tough spell and had to put it right," he reflected.

"Thankfully we’re doing that now. We can look back at a good season and are still hoping to keep up the form to end the campaign on a high.

“It’s been a great experience this season and there’s still a chance to finish in the top half of the league.

“We’re looking forward to getting more points on the board."
