Adam Armstrong interviewed after sending Sunderland to bottom of Championship

4 years ago

Adam Armstrong is a happy man heading into the international break.

The loan move to Bolton had looked a disaster as in the first 11 games they only picked up two points and the Geordie striker wasn’t always getting his game.

However, the return of Sammy Ameobi from injury has coincided with a lift for everybody at the club, as Bolton are unbeaten in five, picking up nine points from 15 after getting only two from the opening 33.

Adam Armstrong has been playing in a different position to usual, out on the wing, but has still played his part in the revival.

Despite that, the 20 year old admits it ‘feels good’ to get his first Championship goal (watch it HERE) for the club.

His 40th minute strike on Saturday proved the winning goal against Norwich, sending Sunderland to bottom spot in the table.

The Mackems then confirmed that position when a goal from former Newcastle youngster Marcus Tavernier, saw Middlesbrough beat them 1-0 yesterday.

Good luck to Adam Armstrong in the remainder of his loan spell and hopefully Bolton’s better form and confidence can see him on an upward curve once again.

Adam Armstrong interviewed by the official Bolton site:

On securing a win before the international break…

“I think it was massive going into the game when you have a couple of weeks off after the game, so we knew we had to give it our all.

“We started a bit slow but we got into it in the game after 15 minutes and we stuck at it and got the win.”

On his first league goal for Bolton…

“It feels good, I mean I think the three points feels better though. We’ve just got to push on now and look forward to Preston in a couple of weeks’ time.”

On the finish…

“I’m pleased with the finish. It was how Gary (Madine) touched it down, it made me have no other option so I just struck it and luckily it went in.”

On his left-wing position…

“Yeah, I feel alright and I’m pleased to be in the team. It’s going well, I think that’s five unbeaten now so the lads are doing well and helping us out a lot with it.

“I’ve been working hard so it’s pleasing to get the goal today, that puts an extra topping on it.”

On the team spirit compared to a month ago…

“Yeah, it’s massive. A couple of wins and a couple of draws gets you buzzing. All the players can’t wait to get back on the pitch after the break and we can only move forward now.”
