Arma: Let's keep the good times rolling

"We knew that we had to keep winning games and to get four wins is brilliant, so let’s hope we can make it five"

Adam Armstrong says the sky's the limit for a Rovers side who are full of confidence following four successive Championship wins.

Having garnered maximum points from the 12 available, Tony Mowbray's men have motored up the league to go to within two points of the top six.

Armstrong's thumping finish helped Rovers to the latest triumph against Derby County at Ewood Park, and the 22-year-old says spirits in the camp are high ahead of trips to Swansea City and Bristol City.

And having registered a trio of wins in a three-game week at the end of November, Armstrong's keen to repeat the feat down in the south-west, starting with Wednesday in Wales against Steve Cooper's Swans.

“Confidence is brilliant," he beamed to iFollow Rovers after the clash with Derby.

"We knew that we had to keep winning games and to get four wins is brilliant, so let’s hope we can make it five.

“I’m not sure if there is a secret to the run we’ve been on.

“Looking back, we knew we had to beat Barnsley. That just seemed to give us that extra bit of confidence throughout the squad.

“The gaffer’s still confident and we’re all confident that we can win games.

“We’ve been brilliant in the past week, but it’s still early days and we need to keep on working hard.

“We have to keep it going. You get confidence every time you get three points and if we can keep doing that then I’m sure we’ll be fine.

“We have to move forward now, keep the points coming, keep the fans happy and keep us happy."

Although Rovers sit 10th in the table, the tightness of the division sees Mowbray's men currently sitting only five points off third-placed Fulham.

And Armstrong admits it's great to be looking up with the aim of getting into the play-offs by 5pm on Saturday afternoon.

“It’s early days but it’s nice to be up towards the top of the table, in and around it," he added.

"We have to keep working and make sure we remain up there.

“We’ve got a tough period coming up with games coming thick and fast, so if we can get through that then I’m sure we’ll be okay.

“You’re playing quality every week in the Championship, that’s the nature of the league."
