Jordan Rhodes: Claiming the winning goal against Ipswich

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."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
