Chris Wood was the goalscorer for Leeds that day after he volleyed in Kemar Roofe’s cross deep into stoppage time. Footage of the goal was recently shared on Twitter.

Against which team did Leeds record their biggest home win?

Here’ what some of the Elland Road faithful have had to say regarding the post.

Did Leeds make a mistake selling Chris Wood?

Yes

Yes

No

No

What do we think?

It’s clear from the above responses that the Leeds faithful look back on that particular away trip fondly. Chris Wood played for the Whites for just over two years after signing from Leicester City in July 2015 for £3.24m.

The New Zealand striker eventually left in August 2017 to sign for Burnley in a deal reportedly worth £14.76m (via Transfermarkt.co.uk). During his time at Leeds, Wood managed to score an impressive 44 goals in 88 appearances.

Since his departure, the 28-year-old has shown that he is a competent League striker, scoring 11 goals in his 26 matches for Sean Dyche’s side since the start of the campaign.
