Newcastle United’s Adam Armstrong  has had a great four months.

After a disastrous spell with Bolton, the Geordie striker then moved on to Blackburn in January.

With 16 League One starts and nine goals, he has been instrumental in helping to guide Rovers to an instant return to the Championship.

Having replaced Sunderland in the second tier, Adam Armstrong is revelling in his first real achievement in league football, despite many highs in the various England younger age groups.

The final games of the League One season all kick off at 5.30pm on Saturday and if Blackburn beat Oxford and Wigan lose at Doncaster, then Blackburn will also be champions, with Adam Armstrong picking up a League One winners medal.

Having previously scored 20 goals in League One when joining Coventry as an 18 year old on loan, Adam Armstrong has undoubtedly benefited from linking up once again this season with Tony Mowbray.

It remains to be seen what Rafa Benitez will do with Armstrong who has two years left on his Newcastle contract but a return to Blackburn on loan in the Championship must be on the cards.

Adam Armstrong speaking to official Blackburn site:

“I said when I came here that I wanted to get promoted and it’s been a nice relief to get there in the end.

“I have won tournaments with England but have never achieved anything at club level.

“Every player wants to win promotions and to get one already at my age is brilliant.

 “We’ll have a good day, hopefully the sun will be out but we have to do our job and hope things go our way over in Doncaster.

 “With over 25,000 packed into Ewood it’ll only give all the lads a lift.

“There will be a real buzz around the place but it’ll be a tough game.

“It was nervous at Doncaster after going off, but fortunately Charlie [Mulgrew] came up with the goods and we won the game [to confirm automatic promotion].

 “I actually missed the final whistle as just before I left the dugout to go to the toilet. When I came back, the final whistle had already blown!”
