Coventry City’s on-loan striker Adam Armstrong has been named League One player of the month, following a goal-laden first month at the Sky Blues.
The England U20 international has been in prolific form for the Sky Blues, scoring five goals in his first three appearances, including two brace’s at Wigan and Milwall, helping Coventry to a top six position at the end of August.
Armstrong got the nod ahead of Gillingham’s Bradley Dack, Rochdale’s Jim McNulty and Walsall’s Sam Mantom, with Sky Sport’s Football League pundit and judging panel member Don Goodman evidently impressed by Armstrong’s rich vein of goalscoring form.
Sky Blues manager Tony Mowbray hailed the August League One player of the month, praising his flying start to the League One season, telling the official Football League site: “We’re all delighted to learn that Adam has won and he definitely deserves it. He’s had a fantastic month and we’ve all been really impressed with him since he joined the club in pre-season. Adam shows a fantastic humility on the training ground which means he is always listening to what you’re saying and always looking to improve. With his natural enthusiasm for the game and his ability to learn, I’m sure we’ll see more from him as the season goes on.”
Coventry will be without Adam Armstrong as they travel to Burton on Sunday, with the on loan Newcastle player unavailable due to being on international duty.
