Newcastle loan striker Adam Armstrong has made it six goals in seven matches with his latest winner for Coventry City.
This was another quality finish by Armstrong, this time with his left foot, and earned all three points from Saturday’s game against Chesterfield.
It was a different kind of quality to this goal, compared to some of the corkers he’s scored already.
The Newcastle striker pouncing only four minutes into the second half, the ball played into him on the edge of the box, Armstrong attempting a clever turn but getting his feet in a tangle.
However, he showed brilliant natural instincts to then correct himself and send a low left foot shot into the bottom righthand corner from around 16 yards.
Adam Armstrong has been one of the bright spots for Newcastle fans this season, seeing just what might be coming our way in future seasons.
In no way am I suggesting he should be brought back early from his loan (not even sure that is possible – but even if it is, he needs to stay out on loan at a lower level to play every week and score regularly to develop his game) but it is difficult not to contrast his goalscoring instinct with that of Papiss Cisse at the moment.
His stand out moment on Saturday was a 10 yard left foot effort with only the keeper to beat – the ball going wide.
Enjoy Adam Armstrong’s latest goal below (it comes at 1.01 on the video) but keep an eye out before that for a very clever piece of skill from the Geordie striker, though he ends up missing the target on this one after doing all the hard work.
The Geordie forward’s goals have directly helped the Sky Blues to land 12 of their 16 points so far, lifting them into fourth place and only two points off the top of League One.
