Newcastle are not playing well at the moment and having a very hard time scoring goals with our most dangerous player in the last two games being …… right back Daryl Janmaat – so that tells you how bad things are.
But our very own Adam Armstrong is not having much trouble at Coventry scoring goals and he was the scorer of Coventry’s only goal after 50 minutes on Saturday, which was enough to give the Sky Blues all 3 points at home to Chesterfield.
Adam Armstrong scored the winner for Coventry – again
Adam scored two great goals earlier this season against Chesterfield so that;s 3 goals he’s now scored against them.
Here are the highlights of the game including Adam’s goal.
If you want to go straight to the goal – it comes after 1 minute and 7 seconds.
That’s a real goalscorer’s goal and with his left foot.
Here’s what Coventry manager Tony Mowbray said about Adam in the Coventry Telegraph:
“It’s great that he scored because that will help him buy into the demands that we put on him.”
“Not that I would ever question him because he works extraordinarily hard.”
“We tell him how we think he should play, the positions he should take up, and it’s important that when he does all that work throughout the week he gets some reward for it.”
”Because if he doesn’t he might start to question what we’re telling him.” “He hit the ground running but he hadn’t scored for a while and sometimes those things can play on your mind.”
“That’s true of any striker and he shouldn’t have that pressure on him at 18 years of age.”
That’s six goals in seven appearances for the 18 year-old – he is looking the part at Coventry.
We may need Adam back at Newcastle in January.
And another Newcastle teenager Alex Gilliead made his debut for Carlisle United at York on Saturday and provided both assists in Carlisle’s 2-2 draw.
Alex started the game and was subbed after 64 minutes – a great start for the 19 year-old.
Who said there wasn’t any good news about Newcastle these days?
