Another award for in-form Sheffield Wednesday striker Jordan Rhodes as partnership with ‘terrific’ Josh Windass flourishes

It was no surprise, was it…?

Jordan Rhodes has been named as Sheffield Wednesday’s Player of the Month for March after scoring three goals and grabbing an assist for the club.

Rhodes played a starring role for the Owls in their impressive 2-1 win over Barnsley before the international break, giving them some light at the end of the tunnel and making sure that this season was his best on a personal level in Wednesday colours.

The 31-year-old’s efforts saw him named in both the Championship and English Football League Teams of the Week by the EFL, and now he’s gained more recognition from Wednesdayites after they voted for him as this month’s best player.

With three goals and an assist in his last three matches, Rhodes admitted that he’s enjoying every minute of it – although he wouldn’t speak just about Josh Windass despite their flourishing partnership.

Speaking to The Star, Rhodes said, “Josh is a terrific player, as is everybody else as well… It’d be wrong of me to single out Josh when Barry (Bannan) put in a terrific ball today.

“We’ve got real talent in the squad, and there are goals there and goals to be gotten.

“Hopefully there will be chances for everybody to get on the end of - and I’m just enjoying every minute of it, whether that’s with Josh or somebody else. The manager has got an array of talent to choose from.”

Rhodes is expected to start once again this coming weekend as Wednesday return to action against Watford at Vicarage Road, and he’ll be desperate to try and keep up his goalscoring form.

The forward hasn’t enjoyed the best of spells at Hillsborough since his move from Middlesbrough in 2017, but could go some way to redeeming things if he can play his part in what would be an unlikely survival.

Rhodes has already contributed to as many goals (4) under Moore as he did under Garry Monk, and more than any other Owls boss since his arrival aside from Carlos Carvalhal under whom he got 12 (eight goals, four assists).
