Newcastle loan striker wins player of the month award after involved in 6 February goals

4 years ago

Adam Armstrong was given time to bed in at Blackburn Rovers.

After a bit of a disaster in the first half of the season at Bolton, the Newcastle loan striker was desperate to get back on track.

At Bolton, the striker had ended up out of position out on the left wing, before eventually being regularly left out the team.

Bolton’s Manager said he wanted the Geordie forward to stay on but not surprisingly he has moved on.

Reunited with Tony Mowbray, the manager who he scored 20 goals for when on loan at Coventry as an 18/19 year old, the payback has been stunning in February.

Starting five League games and off the bench in another, Adam Armstrong has been involved in six goals, scoring four and two assists.

His form has helped lead Blackburn to the top of the table and now looking a great bet to come straight back up.

Friday afternoon has now brought news that Adam Armstrong has won the Blackburn player of the month for February, hopefully with plenty more to come.
