Chris Wood is Leeds' top scorer this season with eight league goals
Yellow peril: Wood pilfered two goals against Reading

By Harvey Byrne

Leeds fans were left disappointed with striker Chris Wood on Saturday following the 1-0 defeat against Huddersfield and supporters took to Twitter to vent their anger at the forward.

The 24-year-old striker started the match up top alongside Marcus Antonsson and played the full 90 minutes during his side’s defeat.

Many fans have criticised Wood for being too inconsistent and they feel that he shouldn’t be a starter in the first team.

The Yorkshire giants suffered a loss after Huddersfield midfielder Alex Mooy scored the only goal of the match ten minutes into the second half.

Fans aired their anger towards Wood on social media following the loss.

The New Zealand international has started seven matches in all competitions in the new campaign scoring three goals.

He moved to Elland Road from Leicester last summer and has played in 43 encounters scoring 16 goals during his year at the club.

Wood has three years left on his current contract and he may see the midweek match against bottom of the league Blackburn as a key fixture to gain some confidence in front of goal.

In other Leeds team news, Garry Monk has named midfielder Liam Bridcutt as the club’s new captain.
