Armstrong ready to take chance with both hands
Ross County winger Daniel Armstrong says he is ready to make the most of his Premiership opportunity.
The 21-year-old signed for the Staggies back in January – his fourth club in a career that has seen him at Wolverhampton Wanderers, Dunfermline and Raith Rovers.
However, coming in halfway through the season to compete with Michael Gardyne and Josh Mullin, Armstrong was limited to just three starts for the club before the end of the campaign.
Though he did score direct from a corner in an Irn-Bru Cup match against East Fife in the middle of February, that was not enough to nail down a starting spot in the team.
But the wide-man says that has just made him even hungrier to capitalise on any chance he does get.
“When you’re coming in and players are playing the way they were, getting results, and the boys in my position were doing fantastically, all you can do is wait for a chance,” he insisted.
“You’ve got to be ready, because if I was in their position I wouldn’t be happy if I was coming into the team.
“Once I get my chance, I’ll do the best I can to keep it.”
It is a quick rise for Armstrong, who was only released by Wolves last summer, signing a short-term deal with Raith Rovers in League One on a free transfer.
Now he has the prospect of playing against the likes of Celtic and Rangers ahead of him in the Premiership, and he is excited to reach another level.
