Rolando Aarons scores first league goal since 2016 as impressive Sheffield Wednesday form continues

1 year ago

It is eight Sheffield Wednesday appearances for Rolando Aarons and he is yet to experience the losing feeling.

Arriving on loan from Newcastle on deadline day in January, the Newcastle winger played and scored in a 2-0 reserve win over rivals Sheffield United, before getting his first team chance.

Tuesday night saw the Owls and Aarons travel to Bolton, Sammy Ameobi lining up for the opposition.

Before this game, Rolando Aarons had appeared off the bench to help Sheffield Wednesday get a win, two draws and no defeats.

Whilst his four starts had seen two wins, two draws and no defeats.

The overall record for the Newcastle loan player now reads four wins, four draws and no losses, as the Owls moved to within three points of the play.

Leading 1-0 at the break, Rolando Aarons started to exert more impact on the game in the second half.

The 59th minute saw the ball fed through and an intelligent run put Aarons in position to execute a very good finish, hammering the ball into the roof of the net.

Whilst Sammy Ameobi played out the full game, Rolando Aarons was subbed in the 87th minute with a 2-0 win sealed up.

This was the first league goal for the NUFC winger in just short of three years, that previous one being when the Magpies hammered Tottenham 5-1 on the final day of the 2015/16 Premier League season with Newcastle already relegated.

It has taken some time but set to turn 24 later this year, Rolando Aarons at last looks to have got his act together and is showing he can play at a decent level.

Good news for all parties as he still has over two years left on his Newcastle United contract.
