ADAM Armstrong believes under the radar Rovers can continue to improve as they chase a place in the Championship top six.

Tony Mowbray’s men ended QPR’s unbeaten run with a 1-0 Ewood Park victory last weekend and a repeat three points against Rotherham on Saturday could see them climb into the play-off places heading into the international break.

Armstrong, who has four goals this term, is happy with the start Rovers have made to life in the Championship following promotion last season and insists there is more to come.

“We have had a good start,” said the frontman. “We knew it was going to be a tough season and we have had a tough start but I think we have done brilliantly and to be eighth is really good and we want to keep on pushing every week.”

On flying under the radar Armstrong said: “I think that is the best way. No-one is really talking about us.

“We know how good we are and we know how good the staff are that we work with and we are just training hard every day and performing on Saturdays.”

In a competitive Championship a lot of the promotion talk has centred on leaders Leeds United along with Frank Lampard’s Derby County and the relegated trio of West Brom, Stoke City and Swansea City.

Rovers have played all five already this term and lost just once, to the Swans last month, and Armstrong believes those results against the division’s big-hitters have given the squad confidence, but not complacency.

“I think you have seen in this league that anyone can beat anyone,” he said.

“There is not a minute where we think we should be beating any team but we do go into games confident.

“We have had a tough run with the likes of Villa, Derby, Leeds and Stoke but for us to be sitting eighth after all those games then why can’t we push on now?”

Rovers will climb into the top six if they beat Rotherham on Saturday and Nottingham Forest and West Brom fail to beat Stoke City and Leeds United respectively.

Mowbray’s men have lost just once in five games to climb into the promotion race and Armstrong felt the way QPR set up at Ewood last weekend showed that sides are wary of Rovers’ threat.

“I think they were time wasting in the first 20 minutes,” added the 21-year-old.

“I think QPR came to sit off and it took a while to break them down and thankfully Ben got the penalty and we got the win.

“We have set the bar now with how well we can play and how well we can do.”
