Rovers are working to get the best out of Adam Armstrong, with Tony Mowbray believing his £1.75m transfer fee to have been a bargain.

Armstrong shone in the win over QPR on Good Friday and with Rovers looking to play a more progressive style, Mowbray feels that will only benefit the 22-year-old.

He is going through a drought in front of goal, without a goal since netting in the win over Hull on January 26, a month in which he scored three times on the way to being named as the Championship player of the month.

But having created Bradley Dack’s goal at Loftus Road, and looking threatening throughout the afternoon, Mowbray says Armstrong’s willingness to learn, as well as his blistering pace, are key attributes.

The boss said: “He’s a centre forward, but he’s a young player with amazing attributes, his burst of speed.

“While we have (Danny)Graham and Dack up the top then he’s better suited in the wide areas and he can play off the left and the right.

“He got in behind a few times and could have picked a better pass, but the one he picked for Bradley was a great cross.

“He cost us £1.75m and in the modern era I think it’s an amazing deal for a young player with his potential.

“We’re happy to have him at the club. He’s a young player who wants to learn, know what he could have done better after every game.

“He’s a joy to work with and we have to get the best out of the attributes he possesses.”

Dack and Graham have 33 goals between them this season, two shy of last season’s total.

They both netted in the win at QPR where Rovers created several good openings.

Mowbray said: “I thought we created some great chances, got in to some great positions, and that was a bit of an Achilles heel during our bad run.

“We were getting in to good areas and created chances to win football matches but the final ball, final cross or final finish hasn’t quite been right.

“Dack and Graham both scored, they’re up to 17 and 16 this season which isn’t a bad return.

“This is Bradley’s first season in the Championship, he’s done fantastically well.

“Let’s keep rolling, finish the season strong and try and take some momentum in to next year.”
