SPECIAL LOAN MENTION: Newcastle starlet Armstrong continues stellar home run for Coventry

Adam Armstrong was back amongst the goals for Coventry City in League One on Saturday.


The 18-year-old Newcastle United striker was on target as the Sky Blues drew 2-2 with Doncaster Rovers at the Ricoh Arena.

Armstrong opened the scoring in the 30th minute when Sam Ricketts' long range effort fell nicely for him in the area before he took a touch and fired beyond Thorsten Stuckmann from around 12 yards.

Nathan Tyson levelled for Doncaster seven minutes into the second half, after Armstrong had neatly played in Jacob Murphy who rifled his unmarked attempt into the side netting.

Coventry edged ahead just prior to the hour-mark when John Fleck's effort from distance squirmed beneath Stuckmann before Tyson again equalised =, this time in the 72nd minute when pouncing on a glaring defensive error.

The draw took Coventry's unbeaten streak to 11 games which is their best run of form since 1967.

Armstrong has now scored 13 goals in 17 tier three appearances for Coventry with 11 coming in 10 home appearances.
