Wood scores again for gutted Leeds Utd

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 29/04/2017

All Whites striker Chris Wood's latest goal for Leeds United was in vain as they dropped from contention to win a place in next year's Premier league.

Wood looks set to be crowned golden boot winner in The Championship after scoring his 26th goal of the second-tier league n in their 3-3 home draw against Norwich City.

However, the result means Leeds United can't finish higher than their current seventh place, shutting them out of the Premier League promotion play-offs, featuring teams ranked third to sixth.

It is a disappointing for the club, who appeared on course for a promotion shot before a series of poor results over the last month.

Wood continued his breakthrough season with a fine volleyed goal just before halftime after Norwich raced 3-0 ahead.

The Kiwi has scored 26 league goals, sitting three clear of Bristol City's Tammy Abraham with one round of matches remaining.

Leeds United are away to lowly Wigan Athletic in their final match next weekend.

Woods' future beyond this season is unclear, with speculation having linked the 25-year-old with several Premier League clubs.
