Coventry City had their second home win in four days tonight as they beat Barnsley 4-3 with goals from Kent and former West Ham and England International Joe Cole – and yet another brace from Newcastle’s 18 year-old on-loan striker Adam Armstrong.
That’s Adam’s fifth brace of the season and it’s taken Adam up to 12 goals in League One in just 14 appearances and he stays at the top of the League One scoring charts.
Adam Armstrong – goal tally now up to 12 goals this season
The win takes Coventry to 4th place in the table, but they are only one point behind second placed Burton and automatic promotion.
It’s almost certain that Adam will stay on loan at Coventry for the season and maybe he can help Coventry get into the Championship for next season.
However, we think once he returns to Newcastle in the pre-season he could be challenging for a first team place at Newcastle.
Adam again played the full 90 minutes as manager Tony Mowbray keeps him on the pitch since hs seems to be able to score at any time.
Good news for Adam Armstrong and good news for both Coventry City and Newcastle United.
