Jordan Rhodes: Continuing his goalscoring formula

The 22-year-old joined Rovers after a successful spell in Huddersfield's League One promotion campaign last term and has maintained his touch in front of goal.

The Scotland international has scored nine times in 14 appearances since the move, including his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday's 4-1 win over Peterborough.

"I haven't really thought about it too much (playing in the Championship). I have just tried to take it in my stride and go with my instincts as much as possible," he said.

"I still try to make the same runs and apply the same touches as ever. I am working hard on the training field to better my all-round play. I am not really doing anything different, I am just trying to improve and trying to better myself.

"I don't know if I could do it in the Premier League. We will not know that until it is tried and tested. It would be fantastic, it would be a dream one day to play in the Premier League and see myself on Match of the Day, that would be fantastic."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
