Facing Norwich City for the second time in quick succession tomorrow, Leeds United goalkeeper Rob Green has claimed Chris Wood is “critical” to achieving three points, report Football Insider.
The New Zealand international is the Whites’ top scorer in all competitions this term bagging 10 strikes so far and Green knows he will prove vital at Carrow Road.
Speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Green claimed: “With Woody [Chris Wood,] we’ve got a centre-forward who can score goals. That is critical when it comes to taking advantage.
“They’ve [Norwich] got so many players they could field two teams.”
Heading into tomorrow’s 3pm kick-off in East Anglia, Garry Monk’s side sit only a point off the play-off places in ninth place right now while Norwich City are in fourth place, trailing league leaders Newcastle United by seven points.
Fielding the likes of Ben Godfrey and Louis Thompson in the EFL Cup penalty defeat to Leeds United late last month, Alex Neil’s side will be full strength again tomorrow.
As for Leeds United and Chris Wood, the Kiwi scored 13 goals in the entirety of last season so he is well on course to better that tally this time around.
