Armstrong confident producing goalscoring form with Southampton

Adam Armstrong is confident taking his goalscoring form with Blackburn Rovers to new club Southampton.

Armstrong's goal glut in 2020/21 followed a 17-goal campaign the previous season, taking his tally to 46 in two years, and 43 in his last 71 appearances.

“I think it's just confidence," he told the Saints website. “As a striker, you know you're going to get chances in the game, but I've always been a confident lad – on the pitch and off the pitch – in my own abilities of what I can do.

“I think it all just came together in the last two seasons. I was playing down the middle a lot more – I had to bide my time to get that shirt down the middle, and as soon as I went down the middle I started producing the goals.

“It's something that strikers get looked on, is goals. I'm sure that's all they can go off really, and I'm thankful that I've scored quite a few goals.

“Like I've said before, I'm a confident lad and I won't shy away on the pitch of taking shots and entertaining the fans, and hopefully scoring a few goals for them."
