Boss: It's been a great week for Arma

"He gets into that assist zone in and around the penalty area, creating chances and causing problems"

15 January 2019

It's not been a bad week for Rovers attacker Adam Armstrong, whose goal against boyhood club Newcastle United was one of the positives to come out of the defeat to the Magpies.

The 21-year-old, who signed permanently for Rovers from the Tynesiders in the summer, followed up his assist and goal in the 2-0 victory over Millwall on Saturday with another to the tally against the Toon.
 
The two strikes have seen his tally for the season move to seven in all competitions, and Tony Mowbray is pleased to see the lively frontman finally get rewarded for his hard graft.
 
“I’m delighted for Adam. He’s had a good week," the boss told iFollow Rovers following the defeat against United on Tuesday night.
 
"He puts in a lot of hard work and was so threatening down that left flank.
 
“We didn’t necessarily play him on the wing, but he puts a shift in most weeks, puts in a lot of work for little reward. He doesn’t have the goals of [Danny] Graham or [Bradley] Dack.
 
“I’m pleased to see him get the rewards this week. His pace can take him past defences and get him into areas. He gets into that assist zone in and around the penalty area, creating chances and causing problems."
