ARMSTRONG IS A MASTER STROKE

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

THE re­cruit­ment of Adam Armstrong is prov­ing to be a master stroke by Tony Mow­bray.

He looked the most po­tent striker in the first half of this game and did not al­low a se­ries of missed chances get to him. His pace and will­ing­ness to keep work­ing is a real bonus and he took his goal su­perbly well just af­ter the half-time break. Mow­bray will have been des­per­ately hop­ing for a sec­ond as his young strik­ers con­tin­ued to push for­ward to real aban­don, but – cru­cially – goal­keeper Lee Burge was also on good form and man­aged to make two vi­tal saves in the sec­ond half.

Ch­ester­field had one or two pe­ri­ods where they looked threat­en­ing but their rear­guard just could not cope with the home side’s pace in the fi­nal third.
