Jordan Rhodes eager to open Canary account

8 August 2018

Jordan Rhodes is looking forward to experiencing Carrow Road as a home player for the first time as he looks to open his Canary account.

The on-loan City striker made his debut during the 2-2 draw with Birmingham City at St Andrew’s on Saturday.

Reflecting on the game, Rhodes said: “It was one I look back on with a little tinge of regret. As a striker it would have been nice to have seen a couple of those chances go in. Credit where credit is due the keeper did make a couple of good saves but strikers always like to score goals.

“I’ll keep getting myself in those positions where the ball might drop and hopefully in the upcoming games one will find the net rather than the keeper’s hands.

“It was a pity we couldn’t win the game but at the same time at least we got our just rewards and managed to get a point.”

The Canaries will play their first home game on Saturday at 3pm against West Bromwich Albion.

Rhodes said: “All the players in the dressing room are really looking forward to the first home game. With them being a particularly good side we will have to be right on our game to make sure that we perform the best we can - and hopefully we can send the crowd home on Saturday night with three points to cheer about and a bit of optimism.

“I’m really, really looking forward to seeing the home crowd going to Carrow Road in the colours of Norwich rather than being an opposition player. Norwich is a club that I’ve always had a soft spot for. My dad signed for Norwich on-loan  some 20 years ago now so it was a proud moment.”

Rhodes joined City players Felix Passlack and Aston Oxborough at the Canaries Official store in Chapelfield on Wednesday for a signing session with supporters.

Speaking at the event, Rhodes said: “It has been two years since I’ve done something like this. I used to do it a little bit at Middlesbrough and a bit at Blackburn and previous clubs but it has been a good couple of years so interacting with the fans is important and it is nice that you come down here and see smiles on children’s faces. It makes it all worthwhile. It is the least you can do as a sportsman to give a little bit back.”
