Delight for Rovers ace Rhodes after hat-trick at former club

JORDAN Rhodes says his second hat-trick for Blackburn Rovers and the 11th of his prolific career was extra special.

The 24-year-old still counts the four goals he scored for Huddersfield Town in a 4-4 draw at his father’s club Sheffield Wednesday in December 2011 as his most memorable moment. But the lethal striker admits his superbly taken treble in Saturday’s 4-2 success at Huddersfield will run it close given it came against his former club – and given he was captaining Rovers in the absence of injured skipper Grant Hanley.

“It was nice to have the captaincy coming back to my old club and what better way than to make it more special than to score three goals and get the win,” said Rhodes, who netted 87 goals in 148 appearances for the Terriers before his club record £8m move to Rovers in August 2012.

MORE TOP STORIES:

“I had three fantastic years here and just before the game I was visualising the good times I had here and the goals I scored at both ends – and I tried to go out there with that positive mentality of trying to replicate that.

“It felt fantastic.”

That positive mental attitude got Rhodes through the longest barren run of his Rovers career.

Before he struck in last Sunday’s East Lancashire derby he had gone nine games without finding the net.

But his hat-trick at the Terriers on Saturday took his tally for the season up to 20 – only Leeds United’s Ross McCormack has scored more in the Championship – and his overall tally for Rovers up to an incredible 48 in 85 appearances.

“Football is a funny game,” said Rhodes, who is aware he is closing in on a half-century of goals at Ewood Park.

“Why feel any different when you haven’t scored in a while? I’ll go home tonight feeling as if I’ve not scored in nine and even when I hadn’t scored in nine I’d go home feeling as if I had scored a hat-trick.

“Things don’t change for me, I just try to remain positive and stay nice on and off the pitch.”

Nine of the 11 hat-tricks that Rhodes – the first Rovers player to fire 20 league goals in successive seasons in the second tier of English football since Tommy Briggs in 1957 – has netted have come in senior club football.

But he had difficultly wrestling his latest match ball – all of which he keeps at his parents’ house – from the fourth official.

Rhodes, who has now scored five goals in four matches for Rovers against Huddersfield, said: “He didn’t seem to be giving it to me but I was like, ‘that’s mine, I’ve earned it, so give it here’.”

Rhodes is now just five goals away from 150 in his senior club career after the hat-trick moved him up to 145 in 266 appearances.

And Rovers boss Gary Bowyer said: “It was an outstanding display of finishing and he has been doing it for a number of years now.”

Would have been much better to have taken at least one of these goals in the derby game.

Well done Jordan but your achevement means more to you than it does to Rovers supporters. A nothing season, a defeat to the enemy on our own patch, another year in the Chumpionship next season and probable financial difficulties to look forward to. Yep, well done.

Jesus you can tell it's Monday morning can't you?

A troll with the old hash up "He's off in the Summer" and another potential suicide because we lost to Burnley. Get real, it ain't the end of the world unless you have sod all else in your life, it's a game of football.

BTW he scored one and hit the post against Burnley and with 4 goals in the last 3 games it looks like the drought is over at last.

Finally seen the goals and as I said the other day what a difference when he is facing goal with the ball at his feet.

For most of this season he has been plowing a lone furrow up front, back to goal facing neck high long balls, with two Gorilla's in football shirts waiting to clatter him.

That isn't his style yet he has still notched up 20 goals, so all credit to him.

Bolton can't get promoted this season pal, perhaps next year.

As for Rhodes, I'm sure he'd swap mid-table, about to be financially crippled, Blackburn Rovers for a spot on the bench should Burnley achieve promotion to the Premier League. He's no Ings or Vokes but he'd do a job for us.

He has his limitations however, so I'd not pay above £5million for him.

48 goals in 85 games is incredible given he has been playing in an inconsistent team and playing up front on his own most of the time. There's also plenty of games left to overtake McCormack before the end of the season. That would be a nice reward for Rhodes and ensure more points for us to finish on a high note this season.

Shame he waited until our season was effectively over before returning to form. The previous three results ended hopes of the play-offs and Rhodes' second half miss in that horror show at Bolton summed up everything that has been wrong with Rovers' season. Far too inconsistent.

Perhaps the inconsistency is something to do with all the changes we have had to make this last couple of years. I'm sure a more settled team would see a more consistent set of results.

Venky's took the club from mid-table Premier League and just over three years later we are mid-table Championship and facing a third successive season in the second tier for the first time in 20-odd years. There was no need for the systematic dismantling of a settled top flight club and it all leaves a very sour taste.

All Strikers lose form at some point in time, look at Suarez at Liverpool for instance, he has just gone 8 or 9 games without scoring in an extremely good and settled team.

As for the playoffs I will give up on them when we need more points than we can get, not before.

What we desperately need now is no more injuries, giving us the chance to get a settled side out for a few games.

Every player does have a price but should a club achieve promotion to the Premier League and benefit from £120million then you have to say they stand a much better chance of keeping hold of their better players than a club that's mid-table in the Championship and unable to strengthen next season due to a transfer embargo. Its also highly unlikely that a top six Premier League club would come in for either player which gives that player the option of being first choice in their current side or a backup player for a mid-bottom half Premier League side.

I'm pretty sure Rhodes would like to take a step up from Blackburn Rovers, and a newly promoted side would certainly appeal.

I can honestly say that my association with the Venky-inspired FU that is the current incarnation of BRFC is by a long distance the sh!ttest thing that I have to consider.

A hat-trick at Hudersfield brought about by a forced change in formation ain't a sign of better things to come unless Bowyer ditches his conservative approach and continues to play in the same attack-minded manner. Despite evidence of the effectiveness of this approach on at least one other occasion Bowyer refuses to use this as a preferred formation.

Simon Garner was totally different, by the way.
Took Garner a few years to get going and he was in his mid twenties before he started to score regularly. He was a powerful, quick sprinting striker who surprised defences with his movement over the first couple of yards. With Bobby Saxton/Don Mackay as his coaches he was effective. Such a shame though that the Walker/Dalglish years came about 5 years too late for Simon, cos Kenny would have made him into a top player in the top flight.
Garner had qualities that would translate easily to a higher level...Rhodes seems more of a gamble because of his lack of obvious pace, leap and strength, but his goalscoring record surely means he'll get his opportunity sooner or later!!
