Rhodes is generally considered to be a striker, but his pace means that he is also effective as a left-winger and it is for this position that he appears to have been signed by Stuart McCall.

Rhodes was signed by Brentford from Newmarket Town in the 2003-2004 season. However, after breaking into their first team he suffered a serious knee injury against Walsall after a foul from Paul McShane in January 2005 which put him out of football for over a year.

Although he has fully recovered he did not manage to fully break back into the Bees' first team and has been rumoured to have attitudinal problems.

His close skills were evident when he turned the A.F.C. Bournemouth defence to score the only goal of the last game of the 2003-2004 season to guarantee Brentford's League One survival.

In October 2006, Rhodes signed for League Two side Swindon Town on a months loan deal and was transfer listed on his return. However, no permanent moves were forthcoming and on March 9, 2007, Rhodes embarked on a new loan spell at Grays Athletic.

New Brentford manager Terry Butcher offered him a new deal in the summer but he did not accept it within the stipulated time, and left the club on June 25, 2007. Following an unsuccessful trial with League Two rivals Darlington, Stuart McCall has given him a contract until January 1st.
