All Whites striker Chris Wood was forced from the field soon after scoring his 14th goal of the season for English Championship team Leeds United in their 2-0 win over Reading.

The 25-year-old New Zealander has been in excellent form for Leeds this season, scoring 11 times in 21 league matches as well as three times in the League Cup.

Wood smashed Hadi Sacko's cross into the top right corner on the half-hour mark, but was subbed off soon after with what looked like a hamstring injury.

Leeds coach Garry Monk said the 1.91m forward would be monitored carefully.

"Chris Wood's just got hamstring tightness, we won't know for another 24 hours.

"It didn't look like a bad one where I was, but we will have to wait," Monk said.

Leeds have edged up into fifth place on the Championship table, two points astray on third-placed Reading and 10 points shy of leaders Brighton and Hove Albion.

Leeds host mid-table Brentford at the weekend.
