Eddie Quigley was the last player to achieve that feat in the 1954/55 season, with Ted Harper and Jack Southworth the other two to have scored seven in a row.

And Rhodes, 23, hopes to claim parity by being awarded the strike initially given as a Stephen Henderson own goal in the clash at Ewood Park.

Rhodes told Radio Rovers: "Nobody is taking that off me. I didn't know much about it at the time, it was one of those things where you get yourself in the right place and the ball just hits you.

"I think it took a touch off the keeper as it was on the way in, but I certainly made good contact on the ball. I didn't really see where the ball went, but I

saw it hit the back of the net and I was off."

The victory made it three on the spin under new boss Michael Appleton, and Rhodes added: "I'm just happy that we managed to get the win, but to be considered among the likes of those names and to equal a club record is fantastic."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
