JORDAN RHODES aims to continue his sensational scoring streak for Huddersfield Town at Scunthorpe tonight.
But amazingly, the man who has notched eight goals in his last three Town games would need to collect a third straight hat trick to set a new club record!
That’s because the magnificent Dave Mangnall, right, managed to score an astonishing 10 in four matches in the middle of a stunning scoring streak back in 1931-32.
The centre-forward signed from Leeds for £3,000 in December 1929 notched four in a 6-0 FA Cup third-round replay win over Oldham at Leeds Road, then added another as Chelsea were seen off 2-1 in a home top-flight fixture.
Mangnall, a former coal miner who had been rejected by Town as a junior, scored twice in the 5-0 win over QPR in round four of the FA Cup before firing a hat trick as Sheffield Wednesday were seen off 6-1 in a league derby at Leeds Road.
His goal glut came in the middle of a sequence of scoring in 11 successive matches (19 goals) and over the whole campaign, he totalled 42, still a club record.
Mangnall left Town for Birmingham in February 1934 having netted 73 times in 90 games!
Two Town players have netted nine times in four matches.
Charlie Wilson, the man Rhodes matched by scoring successive hat tricks, did it in December 1923 (single, double then the two trebles).
And Sammy Taylor achieved the feat in March 1920, when league returns of two, three and two were followed by a double in the 2-1 FA Cup semi-final win over Bristol City at Stamford Bridge.
