Adam Armstrong says Rovers know there can be no let-up if they are to keep up their pursuit of a top six finish.

Rovers bounced back from a first home defeat in 11 games against Fulham last weekend as they saw off Hull City on Tuesday night.

Armstrong scored a stunning goal to put Rovers 2-0 up, his 10th of the season and 50th league career goal in his 150th outing.

More importantly, he’s stepped up when Rovers have needed him most with 11 goal involvements since December and with Rovers without several key attackers.

Keeping Armstrong fit will be vital if they are to have any chance of breaking in to the top six, but the 23-year-old says he’s never felt better.

“I’m feeling confident, working hard and it’s paying off.

“I’m playing well, hopefully I can keep it up until the end of the season no matter where I play.

“We’ve been unlucky with injuries, but the lads have stepped up which they have to.

“We’re looking up and just need to keep it going.

“We know as a team it’s really tight, we can’t fall off, we have to keep pushing on.

“Hopefully we’ll be in the mix towards the end.

“The lads all know (we’ve been in this position before), we’re not stupid, we need to keep grinding wins out and keep it going.”

Rovers lost 1-0 to Fulham and were heading for more frustration at Ewood until they struck three times in the space of seven minutes in the final quarter.

And Armstrong says the victory was imperative.

“We needed the three points, we knew that,” he added.

“It was a good performance from the lads, but we should have killed them off in the first half.

“That’s football, but we came back second half.”

Armstrong’s goal was described as ‘world class’ by opposition boss Grant McCann and the man himself admits it’s up there with the best he’s ever scored.

It was a fourth goal from outside of the box already this season, and he admitted: “I think it was one of my best, it was nice. I just saw the space and I’ve scored a few from outside the box this year so I thought ‘why not?’

“I feel good, it’s probably one of the fittest I’ve been and that’s paying off on the pitch.

“We’ve lost big players but if we can keep going, the lads who have come in have done well and we need to keep it going.

“It’s about the team and now we have to move on to Charlton.”
