Adam Armstrong On Course To Break Coventry City Record Set By Newcastle Legend Mick Quinn

What a start it has been for United's next big hope...

That's four goals in just two games for Newcastle's next big hope after another Adam Armstrong brace fired Coventry City to a 4-0 away win at Millwall on Saturday. The 18-year-old's first goal was utterly brilliant as he saw the keeper off his line a chipped him with unerring accuracy from all of 35-yards. His second was equally as classy as he timed his run to perfection to chip the ball over the advancing keeper to make the score 3-0 at half time. Armstrong also netted twice on his Sky Blues debut against Wigan Athletic last weekend and should he continue this rich vein of goalscoring form, he'll brake a CCFC record set by Newcastle United legend Mick Quinn 23 years ago. Quinn, who was sold to Coventry by Newcastle in 1992 for £250,000, scored 10 goals in his first six games for City which means that if Armstrong can score seven goals in his next four games, he'll be into the record books. And talkSPORT presenter Quinn made sure that he laid down the gauntlet on Twitter. The former United number nine corrected a Coventry fan that thought he had scored just the eight goals in his first five games before Tweeting: "Try 10 in my first 6 games for Cov, really pleased for Adam #BabyGoalMachine" Armstrong, who is on loan at the Ricoh Arena until January 16, replied: "haha I'm coming for you thanks a lot mate" Challenge accepted! Let's hope the England U18 international can do it! For all the latest NUFC News, Views and Transfers make sure to follow whatculture.com/NUFC on Twitter and Facebook.
