Nottm Forest vs Sheff Wednesday

Nottingham Forest 0-4 Sheffield Wednesday: Jordan Rhodes hat-trick sets Owls up for victory

Jordan Rhodes scored a hat-trick in what was just his second league start of the season Jordan Rhodes ended a 20-month wait for a Sheffield Wednesday goal with a hat-trick at Nottingham Forest that lifted the Owls into the play-off places. Rhodes, who scored nine goals to help Norwich to the Championship title last season after being sent out on loan, put Wednesday in front early on with a fine left-footed finish into the bottom corner. While it took 87 weeks for the long out-of-favour striker to get back on the scoresheet for the Owls, having last netted on 14 April 2018, it took just four minutes for him to score the second of the day, heading home from close range. He completed his treble with a spectacular overhead kick before Steven Fletcher stabbed home a fourth in first-half injury time as Wednesday extended Forest's winless run to four games in devastating fashion. Wednesday's third win in a five-game unbeaten run was never under threat in a relatively subdued second half at the City Ground, which saw Garry Monk's side move up to fifth in the table, while the Reds slipped from fifth to eighth.

Rhodes, Wednesday's record signing who first arrived at Hillsborough in January 2017, scored his stunning first-half hat-trick in what was just his second Championship start of the season. A long ball flicked on by Fletcher set Rhodes up for the opener, and the Scotland international met an Adam Reach cross to nod home his second before Ben Watson wastefully blasted Forest's best chance of a reply over from six yards. There was still time in the first half for Fletcher to keep his fine run of scoring form going, prodding home his seventh goal in six games, as Forest conceded four goals at home before the break in a league game for the first time since August 1996. The first-half salvo was enough to guarantee Wednesday all three points without needing to press for more goals after the interval, and while Forest did threaten after the break - Joao Carvalho going close before Sammy Ameobi had a shot deflected wide - they failed to find a consolation. Head coach Sabri Lamouchi made one notable change to his Nottingham Forest side for Saturday's Championship meeting with Sheffield Wednesday.

Elsewhere, Lamouchi named the same side which were held to a hugely frustrating 1-1 draw by Middlesbrough at the City Ground on Tuesday night. The pair meet with just a point separating them with the Reds occupying fifth spot and the Owls in eighth after their midweek draw at Derby County.

David Prutton played for both the Owls and Forest during his playing career, and the now-Sky pundit is predicting a tight game at the City Ground.

Four goals in the first half, including a hat-trick by Jordan Rhodes, capped off a disappointing day as Nottingham Forest were beaten 4-0 by Sheffield Wednesday at The City Ground. Rhodes hit his treble inside 37 minutes before Steven Fletcher scored the fourth on the stroke of half-time, ensuring a torrid first period came to an end and left Forest with an impossible job in the second half as Wednesday ran out comfortable winners. Sabri Lamouchi made one change to the side that drew against Middlesbrough in midweek, with Joao Carvalho coming into the team in place of Joe Lolley. Wednesday started quickly and made their early pressure count; a route one ball from Cameron Dawson was flicked on by Steven Fletcher, the ball fell at the feet of Rhodes who fired a left-footed shot into the bottom corner. The second goal seemed to spur on the home team during a 20-minute spell of possession and pressure but they failed to penetrate the Wednesday back-line, which was a common theme throughout the game. Rhodes completed his treble and ensured there was no way back for Forest with a spectacular overhead kick just after the half-hour and there was enough time in the first half for Wednesday to add a fourth as Fletcher got his name on the scoresheet.
