It won’t come as much of a surprise to hear that some Sheffield Wednesday fans on social media have been raving about Jordan Rhodes after the Owls’ 2-1 win against Bournemouth on Tuesday evening.
The Yorkshire club picked up arguably their best result of the season against the Cherries, and they won in the sweetest fashion imaginable, with a 90th minute winner from the club-record signing sending the fanbase into meltdown.
Rhodes hasn’t been the most consistent of performers at Wednesday since signing for the club, but he’s gone a long way towards finally paying off his transfer fee with that goal.
Indeed, the Scottish striker scored what could end up being remembered as one of the most important goals of the Owls’ season, and come May, it could very well be a huge factor in Wednesday staying up.
Fans were quick to praise the striker on social media, and rightfully so.
Wednesday didn’t sign a striker on deadline day, so Rhodes may get more chances in the coming weeks, and if he keeps up this level of performance, he could prove to be the man to save their skin.
Here’s what the Hillsborough faithful have been saying on social media…
Just watched Rhodes’ goal again. That’s what he does. Give him the service and he will score! ⚽️🦉#swfc

#swfc Rhodes looks a different man, lost a few pounds and getting stuck in, Fair play.
