ROVERS boss Tony Mowbray believes the club’s supporters will like what they see from ‘exciting’ addition Adam Armstrong.

The 20-year-old joined on loan from Newcastle United on Tuesday and could make his debut against Shrewsbury Town this weekend.

The striker is well known to Mowbray after the pair worked together in the 2015/16 season at Coventry when Armstrong netted 20 goals in 40 League One matches.

And the Ewood boss is delighted to have him at the club.

He said: “I’m looking forward to the supporters seeing Adam Armstrong on the grass.

“He’s only young but he has fantastic ability to score goals but also manipulate the football, travel with it.

“He has a short, staccato running style where he looks like he’s hardly touching the ground.

“He’s an exciting footballer, can score with both feet, play in a number of positions across the frontline and, fingers crossed, he starts well and can continue that.

“There were spells at Coventry when I had him when you just knew he was going to score, he was on fire.

“He’s a nice kid, wants to play football and he’s proved at this level he can score goals and I’m hoping that he can hit the ground running and help this team win some football matches.”
