FULL-TIME: Huddersfield Town 2 Blackburn Rovers 4

JORDAN Rhodes came back to haunt his former club as he scored the second hat-trick of his Ewood Park career to ensure Rovers returned to winning ways after a three-match losing run.

Stand-in skipper Rhodes, who netted 87 goals in 148 appearances for Huddersfield before his club record £8m move to Rovers in August 2012, broke the deadlock early on before Adam Hammill equalised in the 25th minute.

Rhodes, who now has 20 goals for the season, put Gary Bowyer’s battling side back in front in the 55th minute before Craig Conway extended their advantage 10 minutes later.

Nahki Wells gave the Terriers hope when he reduced the deficit in the 71st minute.

But Rhodes ensured there was to be no nervy finish when he notched his third goal of the game nine minutes from time.

Rovers made three changes to the team that started the midweek 1-0 home loss to Bournemouth as the fit-again Matt Kilgallon replaced injured captain Grant Hanley and Lee Williamson and David Dunn came in for Todd Kane and Luke Varney.

Kane and Varney were called into the action before an eventful first half was out, however, as Jason Lowe and then, most seriously, Rudy Gestede, came off to add to Bowyer’s never-ending injury woes.

The Rovers boss cut a happier figure in the fourth minute, though, when Rhodes showed his old employers what they are missing with a clinical finish.

Gestede beat Huddersfield captain Peter Clarke to a raking Michael Keane pass and flicked his header into the path of Rhodes, who slipped past Murray Wallace on the edge of the area before sending Alex Smithies the wrong way.

Rovers, with Lowe playing at right-back and Dunn operating at the tip of a midfield diamond, had the bit between their teeth and it was a compliment to them that Terriers boss Mark Robins was quick to switch the 3-5-2 formation he had started the match with.

But not before Rhodes and Dunn had stung the hands of Smithies, who then caught a looping Tommy Spurr header from a Conway corner from underneath his own crossbar.

Huddersfield missed an excellent chance to equalise in the 23rd minute when the unmarked Clarke headed an inswinging Hammill corner wide when he should have at least hit the target.

But his blushes were spared two minutes later when a quickly taken free-kick ended with Hammill, who had switched from right-wingback to the left wing, cutting inside and sending over a curling cross-shot which beat Paul Robinson all ends up before nestling in the bottom corner.

Rovers then lost Lowe and Gestede, who remained prone on the ground for several minutes after an aerial clash with Clarke before being stretchered off and taken to hospital.

The game, understandably, lost its momentum.

But before the nine added minutes were up both sides had chances to go in front with Wells dragging wide after a good through ball from Jonathan Hogg before a downward Spurr header from a deep Conway corner was hacked away at his near post by Smithies, who then pushed a Varney angled attempt past the post.

The hosts were faster out of the traps after the break and after Keane nearly put through his own goal, Danny Ward blazed wastefully over after Robinson had denied Wells, who then lifted another good opportunity over.

But it was Rovers, who had switched to a 4-2-3-1 formation, who went back in front against the run of play in the 55th minute when Conway escaped down the right before cutting back on to his right foot and standing a cross up to the back post for Rhodes to loop a header in off the post.

And 10 minutes later the impressive Conway got in on the act as he collected a pass from Keane, drove forward and let fly with a 25-yard, left-footed drive which Smithies should have done better than help it on its way in off the upright.

Moments earlier Robinson had done brilliantly to prevent Keane from heading into his own goal.

But the former England number one was beaten when substitute James Vaughan headed the ball down to Wells, who spun Kilgallon before hammering in first time to end his nine-game dry spell.

But any hope the Terriers had of getting back into the match were dashed 10 minutes later when Adam Clayton, under pressure from Williamson, horribly lost possession 20 yards from his own goal.

The lurking Rhodes did not need asking twice as he brought the ball under his control before firing an unerring shot past Smithies to complete a superbly taken treble and get Rovers’ season back on track.

Good result/good effort but the play offs have gone. Just keep going out and throwing everything at teams and you will win. Defences make mistakes when put under pressure. Its a shame GB didn't learn this some time ago instead of sticking with his conservative style of play.

The perfect result, and I'll tell you why - and it pains me to say this when injury is involved but the UNDROPPABLE Lowe is out of the team (as he was at Leeds). So now Bower has no choice but to play without him as opposed to an automatic pick. Cairney back soon, so that's Cairney Dunn Evans- any 2 from 3 in the middle, with Conway and King wide. Gestede injury wasnt pretty though.

Take your point Wild Rover but I very rarely post on a Saturday evening, too much to do and so little time.

I wasn't there so can't comment about tactics, crap or otherwise but after the debacle on Wednesday when if I had described GB's tactics as crap I would probably have been done under the trades descriptions act , this was a very welcome win indeed.

Only seen one of Rhode's goals so far (on Sky late last night) but from the report above it bears out what many of us have been saying all season, Rhodes with his back to goal trying to control long, high balls while being clattered by two gorilla's in football shirts, not a snowball in hell's chance of scoring.

On the other hand, Rhodes given proper service, facing goal with ball at feet will score goals for fun.

Rocket science it ain't.

Despite the highs and lows of this season I will continue to give GB credit for what he is trying to achieve at the club and firmly believe that he should be given until Christmas to sort things out on the pitch.

His inexperience and current lack of tactical awareness holds him back and I have to say he isn't one of the luckiest managers around, but there is only one way to gain experience.

I wasn't there so can't comment about tactics, crap or otherwise but after the debacle on Wednesday when if I had described GB's tactics as crap I would probably have been done under the trades descriptions act , this was a very welcome win indeed. Only seen one of Rhode's goals so far (on Sky late last night) but from the report above it bears out what many of us have been saying all season, Rhodes with his back to goal trying to control long, high balls while being clattered by two gorilla's in football shirts, not a snowball in hell's chance of scoring. On the other hand, Rhodes given proper service, facing goal with ball at feet will score goals for fun. Rocket science it ain't.

answered your own point there WR.

yes there would be many more if we were defeated - but around 50 would be from that dingle idiot and there would be another 50 responding to the low-life.

a good win after an awful week. think we should be fine for a top half finish - would be great if we finish 8th. would love preston to come up

BTW, I haven't given up on scraping a play off place just yet, the pressure is telling on all the teams above us apart from Leicester, Burnley and Wigan, it's up to us to find some consistency and put a run together.

I accept that on the evidence of this season so far that is extremely unlikely but with 10 games or so to go it isn't yet impossible, much stranger things happen in sport.

Dangerous Dave should look at the league position of Portsmouth at the moment to see what could so easily happen. He must have a really long hooter as he cannot see past the end of it.

Well we have done good even though the stats and commentator suggested Huddersfield had most of the play but Jordan was obviously motivated for this one.
GB has lost us the chance of the playoffs with his attititude towards full out attack he probably realises from Kean's days it did not always work but we still don't have the work ethic that Burnley have so its either our players or our manager underperforming.

A good result which I could not see happening based on the 3 previous performances aganst Bolton, Burnley and Bournemouth.

I normally go to Huddersfield away, but after Wednesday night's shambles I decided aganst going.

As other posters have commented, it is no co-incidence that our best results this season have been when Lowe has not featured in midfield.
His best position is at right back.

Yes we have been very unlucky with injuries this season, but I still don't think that GB knows his best team.

As big Sam soon discovered when he first arrived as manager, you cannot build a team or tactics around Dunny, due to his horrendous injury record and his inabilty to play a full 90 minutes.

Couldn't agree more. Absolutely right.

There is a lot if promise and Bowyer absolutely should be in charge next season.

If I am being honest with myself, we will be more prepared for the premier league if we get promoted next season. I think this season would have been too early.

Well done for bouncing back with a win. The perfect reaction after Wednesday night.

Rovers win was oh so welcome and we did it with a quite depleted squad - we have had such terrible luck with injuries to key players and it looks like that will stay with us to the end of the season. To ne still just within shouting distance of the play-offs now is above expectations for the club and GB and all at Ewood should be commended for that.

If only things had worked out better with DJ and/or Best then we could have had another regular scorer to take the tremendous pressure of Jordan Rhodes. More goals would have meant more points and we would undoubtedly already be in a play-off place by now.

With a full squad with all our key players fit and another scoring forward brought in plus with GB having had his first season as a manager behind him, then we can look forward to an exciting time next season.

Funny tho innit&lt; 19 comments by 22:45 on a Saturday night....now , stop me if I am wrong but had we lost there would have been 200 + comments, mainly about Bowyer and his crap tactic, inability to motivate etc etc etc
I also note that it is also all the Troll accounts that are absent....
Bowyer has been tactically inept all season Fact

Funny how Rhodes put himself about today in comparison to a boat load of performances this season
Tactically inept all season? Even in the games we won?? I agree he has made mistakes bit I can't think of a manager that has not made any. He has worked hard and has reacted to changes in fortune and results.
Yesterday's result speaks volumes, we were on the ropes after the last three games but he and the players came up with a reaction and a result.
Blanket criticism does not tell the true story
As for your comments re the midfield he has brought in Tom Cairney? You talk as if he has the pick of the football word and unlimited cash at his disposal. If it were that easy we could all do it
Well said Wild One, although it was Matt telling us that Rhodes wasn't worth keeping just the other day, not sure if he's changed his mind now ?
