Local lad Adam Armstrong is at it again – and he bagged another brace for Coventry City on Saturday and it was a good way to celebrate his 19th birthday, which was on 10th February – last Wednesday.
Coventry won the game 6-0 with Adam’s goals coming in the second half in the 68th and 70th minutes.
Gael Bigirimana is also on loan at Coventry but wasn’t even on the bench on Saturday.
Adam Armstrong – 19 goals in 27 appearances for Coventry
Adam remains at the top of the League One goalscoring charts with 19 goals from 27 appearances – a terrific performance this season from the local lad and this was Coventry City’ biggest win since 1963.
The Sky Blues are now in 5th position in League One and only 5 points out of an automatic promotion place.
Here are all the goals.
It’s a good question whether we should have recalled Adam from his loan spell, since we are finding it so hard to score goals, but it’s probably the right decision by Steve McClaren to leave Adam out on loan at Coventry.
But Newcastle have to find a way of somehow staying in the Premier League this season.
That’s the only thing that matters at the moment.
