TOMMY Miller is banking on Huddersfield Town’s “goal machine” to make all the difference in tomorrow’s League One play-off final.

Jordan Rhodes, the son of Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeping coach Andy, is in line to spearhead the Terriers attack against Sheffield United at Wembley.

The Scotland international found the back of the net in both legs of their play-off semi-final victory over MK Dons to take his tally to 40 for the season, and Miller believes the 22-year-old striker possesses the ability and temperament to flourish on the big stage.

“Jordan comes alive in the box,” said the experienced central midfielder. “His movement is fantastic and he scores all sorts of goals.

“If you give him a chance, he will always put it in the back of the net. He is just a goal machine. To get 40 goals is a fantastic achievement.

“It is priceless having someone like that in your team.

“Jordan’s goal in the first leg against MK Dons was so typical of him. He just got in front of his man, got a little glance on the cross and headed it in.

“When United see his name on the teamsheet, we hope it will put the fear of god into them.

“They will have seen all the goals he has scored and realised he is a massive threat.”

You have to go back to 2001 for the last time Huddersfield played in the Championship.
