Blackburn striker makes first return to Portman Road

Mick McCarthy has warned of the threat that former Blue, Jordan Rhodes, carries ahead of tonight’s game against Blackburn. 

The Rovers’ striker left Portman Road in 2009 to join Huddersfield while still a teenager and has gone on to establish himself as one of the most prolific strikers outside the Premier League. 

A reported £8m move to Blackburn followed last season and the Scotland international deflected in the winner in Town’s 1-0 defeat at Ewood Park in February. 

Rhodes makes his first return to Portman Road since leaving the Club and Town boss Mick told the Club website: “There’s no doubt he’s a goalscorer. 

“He scored against us last season – there was some debate about that one – but he has proved he scores goals. 

“He is a constant threat, whether he is in the game or not and we know we will have to be switched on against him but we carry our own threat as well."

Rhodes could be joined in Blackburn's attack tonight by DJ Campbell, who scored 10 goals for Blues last term during a loan spell.

Kick-off at Portman Road is 7.45pm.
