Adam Armstrong is up for another award – this time the Championship’s player of the month for July.

Armstrong has already walked away as Rovers’ player of the season for 2019/20, and his strike at Cardiff City earlier this month saw him lift the Peter White Memorial Trophy.

Now the 23-year-old is one of four players shortlisted for the Championship’s July player of the month, with the winner announced tomorrow.

The attacker finished with 17 goals in 2019/20, four of which came in July, including his goal of the season strike against the Bluebirds.

The month also included a stunning free kick against Leeds United at Ewood Park, and he also showed his prowess on his left foot with finishes against Reading and Luton Town.

The strike at Cardiff also came during a productive July for Armstrong who won this award in January 2019.

A £1.75m signing from Newcastle United two summers ago, having finished the 2017/18 promotion campaign on loan at the club, Armstrong has established himself as one of the Championship’s hottest properties.

He has now 35 goals in Rovers colours and is contracted for another two years.

The judging panel said of Armstrong: “Staged his own goal of the month competition with four classically different goals in six games – a superb free-kick against Leeds, two clinical left-foot finishes and, best of all, an audacious first-time driven lob from 45 yards at Cardiff.”

The competition for Armstrong will be fierce, with Said Benrahma the favourite after the Brentford attacker scored six times in six matches, including a hat-trick against Wigan Athletic.

However, Wigan loanee Kieran Dowell, who this afternoon signed for recently relegated Norwich City on a permanent deal, also scored a hat-trick in the month of July in the rout against Hull City, also adding an assist, and scoring in the draw with Charlton.

While Wigan ultimately couldn’t save themselves from relegation, pending an appeal, Stoke City did, and their impressive form to the end the campaign relied much on the performances of central defender Danny Batth.

He came up with three goals, and also helped the Potters to three clean sheets, as Michael O’Neill’s side pulled themselves clear of relegation trouble.

In a change to the usual format, there are six nominations for the manager prize.

Marcelo Bielsa (Leeds United), Steve Cooper (Swansea City), Nathan Jones (Luton Town), Michael O’Neill (Stoke City), Scott Parker (Fulham) and Gerhard Struber (Barnsley) are all in the running.
