Rob Green identifies Leeds player who is critical to their chances of winning
By Emma Sanders
Rob Green has identified Chris Wood as “critical” to Leeds’ chances of winning ahead of their weekend fixture against Norwich.
The former Canaries goalkeeper will be making a return to Carrow Road on Saturday in the Championship clash and says Leeds have developed their style in recent weeks.
The two teams went head-to-head in the EFL Cup last month and Green sat out as Marco Silvestri produced penalty shoot-out heroics in goal to help his side progress to the quarter-finals.
“We had issues defensively which we addressed. After that, it’s not rocket science. If you don’t concede you can win by the odd goal and a lot of our games have been won or lost by one goal,” said Green, as reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post.
“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,” he added.
Leeds have not lost a game since their 1-0 defeat against Derby on 15th October and are hoping to make it four wins on the row against Norwich.
They currently sit in ninth position in the league table, while their opponents are just four points off Brighton in second place.
Green is expected to make his 16th league appearance against his former club, after he stood in goal for Norwich on 241 occasions during a 10 year career at the club.
