Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray has praised the impact of striker Adam Armstrong but admitted the loan extension isn't done yet.

The Sky Blues secured an impressive three points at Gresty Road with the Newcastle United loanee scoring his first professional hat-trick in the first-half at Gresty Road.

Jacob Murphy scored a brace for the Sky Blues who ran out 5-0 winners to keep up the pressure at the top of the League One table.

Mowbray praised the impact from the 18-year old striker but expressed caution on the extension of his loan deal.

The City boss said: "I'm absolutely delighted for him. He's been taking a bit of stick from the lads because he hasn't scored an away goal since Millwall.

"I'm sure that was in the back of his mind today and it's great to see him take his chances as well as he did. 

"He's works really hard on the training ground and he's a great lad to work with day-in, day-out. 

"Nothing has been signed in regards to his loan yet so we'll have to wait and see if we can keep Adam with us for the remainder of the season."

The City boss also credited goalkeeper Reice Charles-Cook who pulled off a string of fantastic saves during the second-half.

He added: "He was somewhere near his best today and I'm delighted for him. He pulled off some great saves and that's what we expect him to do.

"He's aware that he made a few errors recently but that performance today should put that to the back of his mind.

"It was a great day for the team but also the supporters who travelled once again in their droves and made it feel like a home game at times, and we're thankful for that support."
