Garry Monk’s team could only secure a point at home to Norwich on Saturday afternoon, which all but under their play-off hopes.
Wood found the back of the net during the match at Elland Road as Leeds came from 3-0 down to rescue a 3-3 all draw.

“Wood has done fantastic up there, the centre-forward, I mean there will be people eyeing him up,” Jones told Goals on Sunday, which aired on Sky Sports 1.
It is highly likely that Wood will finish the season as the Championship’s top scorer as he has currently has found the back of the net on 25 occasions.
Over the course of the season, he has scored against the likes of Sheffield Wednesday, Fulham, Reading, Huddersfield, Brighton, and Newcastle.
All the teams above have either secured their promotion to the Premier League or they will be fighting it out for the final promotion spot.
During his career Wood has only played nine matches in the Premier League, scoring only one goal as he will be hoping to make a comeback in the near future.
The Elland Road faithful will be hoping Wood is still at the club next term as they aim for another push to the top flight.
