Sheffield Wednesday striker, Jordan Rhodes, says he’ll be fighting right to the end as he enters into the final nine games of his current Owls contract.

Rhodes was at the double over the weekend as he bagged a brace to secure three points for Wednesday against local rivals, Barnsley, giving them a glimmer of hope for survival going into the international break.

The 31-year-old now just needs eight more goals to become the Championship’s top scoring player of all time – overtaking David Nugent (121 goals), but it remains to be seen exactly what the future holds when his current deal expires at the end of June.

With three goals and an assist in his last three outings under Darren Moore, though, he admits that he’s really pleased with how things are going, saying after the game, “I really am enjoying my football… It’s nice to be out there, it’s nice to be wanted again. I’m doing my best, and that’s all I can say.”

He wouldn’t be drawn into commenting on his future simply telling the media, “That’s for the powers that be, that’s way out of my control, I’ll just leave it at that.”

What the striker did say, however, was that the focus right now was on the next game, saying, “We’re not thinking about anything else at this point in time – every game that comes around we’re just concentrating on doing our best, and getting the required points to climb up that table. We’ll fight right until the very end.”

Next up for Wednesday is a trip to Watford and Rhodes has certainly done enough to justify another start.
