UPDATE: Rhodes claims record in Ipswich win
JORDAN Rhodes is claiming the winner in this afternoon's 1-0 win at home to Ipswich to take Rovers to just four points away from the Championship play-offs.
Replays are inconclusive as to whether Rhodes got a touch to the ball before it cannonned off goalkeeper Stephen Henderson for a second half winner - but Rhodes is adamant it is his goal.
Should the strike be credited to the Scot, Rhodes will have equalled a club record of scoring in seven straight league games, with only Jack Southworth, Eddie Quigley and Eddie Harper having done it before.
Rhodes said; "It is definitely my goal. I know I am going to say that but it was. I got a good connection to send it towards goals and maybe it went in off someone."
Rovers and Ipswich cancelled each other out in an uneventful and uninspiring first 45 minutes.
Neither goalkeeper had a shot to save in earnest, as the defences came out on top leaving a quiet Ewood Park very little to cheer about.
The visitors had the better of the chances that were made, with Aaron McLean glancing an Aaron Cresswell cross wide midway through the half.
The second half continued in similar fashion until the introduction of DJ Campbell for his debut on 58 livened things up.
Rovers were ahead a minute later through Rhodes. Danny Murphy's right wing corner dropped to Grant Hanley and, after his shot was blocked on the line, Henderson deflected the ball into the net with Rhodes claiming an initial touch.
Towards the end Campbell had a shot tipped wide by Henderson and Rhodes headed wide, while at the other end N'Daw volleyed inches wide as Rovers continued their winning streak.
