Boss throws down the gauntlet for Arma

Tony Mowbray is targeting double figures for the in form frontman

27 January 2019

Tony Mowbray has challenged in form frontman Adam Armstrong to reach double figures for goals in the Championship by the end of the season.

The number 7 has been in electrifying in recent weeks, and scored his third goal in his last four games with the opener against Hull City on Saturday.

Armstrong, who turns 22 next month, has eight strikes in all competitions this term, with five of those coming domestically so far this season.

And Mowbray's now hoping his Geordie star can double that tally in the Championship at least over the next few months.

“I’m pleased for Adam Armstrong as he works so hard for a young guy playing on the wing," the boss beamed to iFollow Rovers.

"He’s working relentlessly for the team. The rewards are there for Arma now with the goals and assists and all that hard work is paying off for him.

“I’m delighted for him, and ultimately he needs to get himself to the levels he got to at Coventry a few seasons ago when I had him, where he got 20 goals.

“If he can reach double figures then people will start noticing this whippet that we have running down the flanks for us."
