Two Late Goals By Newcastle Whiz Kid Wins It – Video


With Peterborough ahead in the game 2-1 at Coventry this afternoon with just 10 minutes to go it took goals in the 80th and a fanstic winner in the  87th minute from Newcastle´s Adam Armstrong to preserve Coventry’s unbeaten home record this season.

Tony Mowbray and Adam Armstrong celebrate

Adam slotted home into an empty after Murphy had set the Newcastle man up nicely and then with just three minutes to go,  Adam scored his 10th goal of the season when he beat two men in the box and hammered the ball into the back of the net with his left foot for a tremendous winner.

This is what Coventry manager Tony Mowbray said after the game:

“We always knew it was going to be an open game; we knew it was a very dangerous game.”

“It ebbed and flowed a little bit, and they’re a very very good team. Maybe they couldn’t sustain that high intensity. The second half: what can you say?

“The supporters dragged the team along, we attacked with purpose, and Armstrong’s second goal – if any player in the world scored that – we would be eulogizing that.”

“I’m delighted for the fans to see the team play with the heart they showed in the second half, and I’m delighted for the players as well. Hopefully everyone’s going home happy.”

Come to think of it Adam´s  second goal is exactly what we needed against Stoke today at St. James’ Park to break the deadlock.

The win takes Coventry up to 4th place with 28 points from 15 games just 4 points behind second-placed Burton and an automatic promotion place.

And that´s now 10 goals for Adam Armstrong this season and it keeps him at the top of the League One goalscoring charts.

He´s doing great on loan this season – keep it up Adam.

    THAT’S MY BOY!! 😉 Legend in the making, no ifs or buts or maybes. Keep him until he’s 25 and he’ll be our first 100m sale. No need to sell any sooner, he just gets better match on match.

    I know what you’re saying that there are encouraging signs. However, the table doesn’t lie. You can’t go week after week saying how well we’re playing if we’re getting marooned at the bottom of the table and continuing to get humped 3 – 0 by a crappy Sunderland side.

    The fact is we’ve been poor for years and the results tell you that. There are reasons why we are where we are. It’s time for the optimists, not least Makro and Costco, to face up to them and sort them out.

    Makro had his feet firmly under the table when Thauvin was signed. It tells you all is still not right. Even if Makro had been in the international space station, he could’ve watched the videos of last season to identify the problems. He could’ve simply watched MOTD last season to know that giving Colo a new contract would be bonkers. I don’t buy his claim that he’s only just finding out. It’s a big worry.

    Jimmy, he seldom does tap ins either, just cracker after cracker. That goal would’ve graced the world cup, let alone division one. I’m happy to keep him there until january, because his confidence must be sky high right now. I said he’d score 20 by january and that’s still on. He’s halfway there already.

    It is the third tier but it can only help the boys development. Can only wonder if he’d be as good under McWally ?

    Manpixie, I had a bet this kid would break Charlton’s England record when he was just 16. He has both feet firmly planted on the ground and just wants to learn all the time. No chance of him turning into billy big boots. Most natural goalscorer since Shearer and best academy product since gazza. He’s the real deal.
