Huddersfield Town striker Jordan Rhodes said we are heading to Wembley with a 'fighting chance' after Town’s Play-Off Semi-Final victory against Luton Town on Monday 16 May.
The game was scoreless until 82nd minute when Town’s frontman got on the end of a Sorba Thomas set play to send Town to Wembley.
Speaking to HTTV after the game Rhodes had this to say about that special moment:
“Sorbs put a really good ball into the box. He took enough pace off the ball and put enough curl on it for us to try and get around the back.
“I just tried to make good contact. I think the full-back was maybe trying to get it to go out of play for a goal kick and I just managed to close my eyes, cross my fingers and fortunate enough I did that.
“The scenes after that were pretty good and will last me a lifetime.”
The striker was awarded Man of the Match and was very grateful for the performance of his teammates:
“Lads were terrific tonight, terrific in the first leg, terrific all season.
“It is just a reward for them getting the win after a tough encounter against a good Luton team, yeah delighted for everybody.”
The Terriers are on their way to Wembley on 29 May 2022 for the Play-Off Final, a game which Jordan knows will need the fans backing:
“Just thank you for your support all year. It's been hopefully not as rocky a ride as what it's felt sometimes.
“We are going down to Wembley now with a fighting chance, 90 minutes to play in the Premier League so let's go down there with every hope we can do it.
“It will be a tough game against a side we don't know yet - so why can't it be us.”
