JORDAN RHODES produced a five-goal show to sink Wycombe and lift Town to Third in League i and beamed: “It feels fantastic!”
The red-hot striker, watched by Spurs coach Joe Jordan and England Under 21 chief Stuart Pearce, who will lead the Great Britain football team at this summer’s London Olympics, now has 27 goals at club level for the season and another six for Scotland under 21s.
Spurs were among eight Premier League clubs represented at Adams Park, where Oscar Gobern was the other goalscorer in Town’s 6-0 romp in front of the Sky TV cameras.
“I’m just focused on my job here. I look forward to training and playing for Huddersfield Town – it’s what I get paid for,” said Rhodes, pictured above scoring one of his five last night.
“We knew it would be a tough game down here, and fortunately we got the win we wanted, which was the most important thing.
“I’m really happy with my performance and goals, but the most pleasing thing overall is the way the team played.
“I thought we passed it around in the middle and switched it from side to side terrifically well. It’s great that we kept a clean sheet as well, and it puts us in good stead for what’s to come in the next few weeks.”
Asked which of the five goals was his favourite, Rhodes responded: “All of them!
“I’m happy with every goal, no matter how it’s scored.
“They all count the same and they all mean the same. Goals are what strikers live for.”
Boss Lee Clark said: “We were sensational. We scored six, but it could have been double figures, and that’s not being disrespectful to Wycombe.”
