Pride of place on the mantelpiece...

Arma's hoping his Player of the Month prize is the first of many at this level

8 February 2019

Adam Armstrong couldn't stop smiling after picking up his Player of the Month award for January, but says his focus is on continuing his fine displays throughout the final months of the season.

Armstrong played a pivotal role in Rovers' fine run of form, scoring goals in the games against Millwall and Hull - as well as former club Newcastle in the FA Cup - and also claiming four assists.

The 21-year-old battled it out with Hull's international winger Kamil Grosicki, Swansea hitman Oli McBurnie and Aston Villa top scorer Tammy Abraham, to land the player prize.

And speaking to iFollow Rovers, he confessed that it's been an enjoyable January both on a personal level and for the club.

“I’m buzzing to win it for the first time playing in the Championship, so hopefully it’s the first of many," the diminutive forward said.

“I don’t normally look back, but when you do look back it’s been a great month for us and me. Hopefully we can keep this form up.

“I’m a bit of a winger now, so the goals mean just as much as the assists.

“The gaffer has given me the freedom to stay out wide and do what I’m good at. It’s working at the moment, so let’s keep it going.

“The award will go on the mantelpiece. It’ll be in my living room tonight. In any walk of life, if you get an accolade you want to show it off."
