Tony Mowbray feels Adam Armstrong is learning to trust what the coaching staff are asking of him after another of his ‘hot days’ in the draw with Rotherham United.

Mowbray believes the 21-year-old, who has four goals this season, can become something of a bargain for Rovers after his £1.75m summer move from Newcastle United.

He has taken the man of the match prize in two of Rovers’ last three home matches, operating from a wide striker role, to the left of an attacking trio behind Danny Graham.

Asked if the England youth international was finding consistency, Mowbray said: “I think so.

“I’ve worked with Adam for a long time now, thinking back to our days at Coventry City, and know how electric he can be on his good days. He had a hot day (against Rotherham).

“I think he’s learning the game, he’s trusting when we’re telling him to stay out wide because sometimes he wants to come in to the middle and get involved.

“His attributes are his fantastic speed and tight control and sometimes just to isolate him one-on-one with a defender is a tough day for the full back.

“He has to trust us when we tell him to stay out wide, not go running inside, yet he’s not a winger.

“He’s a wide striker for us, he threatened the goal as well as creating chances and I’m sure he will only get better and stronger as we move forward.

“The money we’ve paid for him, he’s potentially going to be a super player.”
