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

Chris Wood was once again missing from Leeds’ squad to face Cardiff – and Twitter had some interesting theories as to why.

The New Zealand striker has not featured since January 26 because of a hamstring injury but Steve Evans had assured fans 24 hours before the match that he would be in the matchday 18.

Wood is the Championship side’s top goalscorer and Leeds have managed just three goals in the five league matches he has missed.

Leeds announced their matchday squad without Wood anywhere in sight and Whites’ fans reacted with bewilderment and some outlandish conspiracy theories.

The Watford game was on 20 February and Leeds lost 1-0.
