Coventry City striker Adam Armstrong isn't worried about not getting his hat-trick against Wigan, because he'll get it next week.

The 18-year old striker enjoyed a dream debut for the Sky Blues as his brace secured a 2-0 win over Wigan Athletic at the Ricoh Arena.

Armstrong scored his first when Jim O'Brien picked him and he raced through on goal to slot home in the 14th minute, and he doubled his tally in the second-half after a great cross from John Fleck.

The Newcastle United loanee praised the performance at the Ricoh Arena and hopes to keep his goal-scoring up.

Armstrong said: "It was a great day. I knew when I turned up at the stadium that it was going to be a good day.

"I'm really confident in front of goal and I was delighted to see it hit the back of the net, it was a great feeling.

"It's a good standard and I really needed to be at my best today. You've just got to gamble as a striker and it paid off.

"I hit the post late on which was disappointing but I'll get my hat-trick next week."

Armstrong will miss the Rochdale League Cup game due to the youth loan agreement but he will be back for the Millwall trip next Saturday.

He added: "It was a fantastic team performance. We've worked really hard on the training ground to get our game plan right.

"It came off really well and I thought there was so much energy about us, it was a good day to be playing football.

"We kept a clean sheet as well which is a big confident boost for the team and all the lads are buzzing.

"It's a great start and we need to build on this now. We won't get ahead of ourselves but we should enjoy the moment."
