To say that Adam Armstrong is thriving on regular first team football would certainly be the understatement of this month, if not the year.
On loan at Coventry until January, the Geordie striker made it five goals in only 11 days on Tuesday night.
He may have dropped his average after two goals against each of Wigan (watch here) and Millwall (watch here) but last night’s strike was also out of the top drawer, as well as helping to send Coventry clear at the top of League One with maximum points, thanks to their 3-2 win.
On top of his goal, Adam Armstrong was also a menace all night, responsible for a large chunk of Coventry’s 27 attempts (9 on target) on goal during the 90 minutes.
The 18 year has long been talked about as an exciting prospect and scored a bucketful of goals for England but his diminutive stature has had Newcastle fans wondering if he can make it at the top level.
I know this is only League Two at the moment, but the way he has grabbed the chance and shown he is destined for a far higher level, couldn’t be more impressive.
As well as so many of his goals for England, for Coventry each of the five goals has exuded quality in many different ways.
One of his stand out qualities is that he looks a true two-footed player and finisher, look at this clever goal from last night.
Running into the box he does a little trick to shift the ball from his usual right foot and despite being surrounded by three defenders he curls the ball with his left.
