Sheffield Wednesday fans hit out at controversial Jordan Rhodes moment

Sheffield Wednesday fans have decided to hit out at what was a controversial Jordan Rhodes moment for some on Sunday afternoon.

The newly relegated Owls took on Huddersfield Town when the two sides faced each other for the First Round of the Carabao Cup.

It was the Championship side who advanced through to the next stage with a 4-2 penalty shootout win at Hillsborough.

However, during the spot kicks, Jordan Rhodes stepped up, something rare seen for when he played against Sheffield Wednesday, and managed to successfully hit the back of the net.

That in itself was enough to cause annoyance from the home supporters at the ground but also on social media.

Now most players tend not to celebrate against their former club, though on this occasion, some fans reckon they spotted him doing what they didn’t want to see, upsetting a few as they took to tweet their dislike.

The first chance of the encounter fell to the Terriers’ Scott High in the 12th minute when his shot from the edge of the area forced a fine save from Bailey Peacock-Farrell.

Lewis O’Brien was then given the opportunity to break the deadlock after dispossessing Dennis Adeniran, he fired a low shot but was well saved by Peacock-Farrell to his left.

Adeniran hit a 20-yard shot before being comfortably saved by Lee Nicholls.

Huddersfield were on the attack again when Levi Colwill’s header went just wide and a Danny Ward header was comfortably saved by Peacock-Farrell.

At the other end, a low shot from Callum Paterson was straight at Nicholls.

As the visitors continued to threaten, Duane Holmes chipped the ball over the bar, then Ward deflected a shot which hit the side-netting and Peacock-Farrell saved an effort from Holmes.

When Sorba Thomas found himself through on goal, Barry Bannan ran back to make a vital challenge.

In stoppage time, Huddersfield substitute Jordan Rhodes’ goal-bound header, though was cleared by Sam Hutchinson, and then the former Owls striker saw a header go wide.

Nicholls was the hero for Huddersfield in the shoot-out, saving spot-kicks from Massimo Luongo and Liam Palmer to progress through.

Sheffield Wednesday: Peacock-Farrell; J Hunt, Iorfa, Hutchinson, Palmer; Adeniran, Bannan (Luongo 84); Green (Dele-Bashiru 75), Wing, Paterson, Shodipo (Brown 34).

Unused substitutes: Adedoyin, Dunkley, Wildsmith, A Hunt.
