Blackburn Rovers striker Adam Armstrong says the Lancashire side can be in the mix for promotion come the end of the season.

Rovers secured their fourth successive win on Saturday against Derby County with Armstrong’s strike securing a 1-0 win for Tony Mowbray’s side.

They are 11th in the table but only two points of the play-offs with several teams vying to be in the top six at the end of the season.

However, 22-year-old Armstrong is confident that Blackburn will be in or around the promotion places at the end of the season with Rovers “flying” high following their recent impressive run of form.

Speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph, he said: “I thought we were very good. I thought defensively we were very good, we passed the ball, it’s been much better in recent games.

“To get the three points it’s now four in a row which is great.

“The confidence is high at the moment.

“The boys are giving it everything every day and if we can keep putting in performances like that then I’m sure we’ll be right up there come the end of the season.

We know it’s a busy period heading into Christmas time. We’ve got a great squad and anyone can fit in if need be.

“We’re flying at the minute and let’s hope we can keep it up.

“The next game is going to be tough again but we’ll just take every game as it comes as we’ve done recently and if we can put another performance in then we’ll be fine.”
