Blackburn Rovers picked up another win on their travels, as they thrashed Coventry City 4-0 on Saturday afternoon.
A brace from Adam Armstrong and goals from Harvey Elliott and Sam Gallagher saw Tony Mowbray’s side move up to tenth in the second-tier standings.
The goal was Elliott’s first for Blackburn, since arriving on loan from Premier League giants Liverpool in the summer transfer window.
The winger will be looking to make a positive impact with the Lancashire-based side, as they look to mount a serious challenge for promotion into the Premier League under the management of Tony Mowbray.
Speaking in a post-match press conference (quotes sourced from LancsLive) after the win over Coventry City, Elliott revealed that he is still in regular contact with the Liverpool squad, who are messaging him after his matches for Rovers.
“They’re always messaging me everyday. After every training session, after every game, they’re messaging me.
“I still got messages off the players saying good luck, hope you’re well, miss you and stuff like that. So to have them message me is a boost for me as well.”
The youngster was confident that he could build on this impressive showing for Blackburn, and insisted that it was ‘only the beginning’.
“It’s only the beginning, I have a long way to go. I’m taking it day by day and hopefully I can put in the performances in training and in matches to show people what I can do.”
Elliott and his Blackburn Rovers team-mates are set to return to action in midweek, when they take on league-leaders Reading, in what is certain to be a tricky test for Tony Mowbray’s side at Ewood Park.

It’s good to hear the Liverpool squad are still in touch with him.
The Reds made the right call in loaning him out this season, as he’s a player that will benefit from regular game time elsewhere this season, with opportunities limited in the Liverpool first-team.
He’s seemingly adjusted well to his new surroundings with Blackburn, and will be eager to build on some impressive showings as the season goes on.
If he can impress out on loan this term, then I wouldn’t be surprised to see him challenging for a regular spot in the Liverpool starting XI in the 2021/22 league campaign.
