Rhodes can have Benteke-like influence for me at Blackburn - Lambert

Blackburn Rovers' newly-appointed boss Paul Lambert feels that striker Jordan Rhodes can have the same impact under him as Christian Benteke had at Aston Villa.


Rhodes, who has scored eight league goals in the Championship this season, has been the only bright spot for Rovers who they sit four points above the relegation zone.

Of the former Huddersfield Town star, Lambert said: "Jordan Rhodes can be as important to me as Benteke and (Grant) Holt was (at Norwich City).

"His goalscoring record is incredible."
