Tony Mowbray admits he is running out of positives to describe Adam Armstrong after the Newcastle United loanee made it seven goals in as many games with a brace against Blackpool last time out.

And the Rovers boss believes the form of February’s League One player of the month won’t be going un-noticed in the north east with Magpies boss Rafa Benitez.

Armstrong’s second half double saw Rovers run out 3-0 winners over the Seasiders on Saturday and continued his excellent form in a productive loan spell.

The 21-year-old reunited himself with Mowbray in January, with the pair having worked together in the 2015/16 season at Coventry City, where Armstrong scored 20 goals.

And he is rediscovering that form at Ewood Park after a couple of barren loan spells in the Championship with Barnsley and Bolton.

Mowbray said: “I don’t know what else to say about Adam, to be honest.

“He’s a young lad learning the game, and I’m sure Rafa Benitez will see the video clips of all of the goals he’s scoring.

“He scored a fantastic goal against Wigan and two more brilliant goals against Blackpool.

“Goals like his second one are never easy but he kept it down and put it into the corner.

“He also works extraordinarily hard, it’s not as though he’s a striker who just stands there.

“I’ll look forward to him scoring many more goals.”

Mowbray jumped at the chance to bring Armstrong to Ewood during the winter window when the England youth international became available.

He has played most of his football at Rovers on the left of an attacking three behind Danny Graham, scoring the second brace in his time at the club on Saturday.

And Mowbray believes the goal threat that Armstrong provides from out wide has been a major plus for Rovers in their promotion push.

But he believes Armstrong offers much more than just scoring goals.

He added: “I had him at Coventry and he scored 20-odd goals in super fast time.

“He’s a young guy who’s come from a Premier League club and, with all respect to League One, his attributes and quality, his ability to score with both feet, mean he’s better than League One I’d suggest.

“We’re delighted he’s here and delighted that he could finish the game off for us as he did (against Blackpool).”
