Injury has robbed Chris Wood of a large part of his season, leaving some Leeds United fans a little antsy about the proficiency and output of £3m summer buy Chris Wood.

During his rehabilitation from his last bout of injury, a hamstring problem suffered during his full comeback against Brentford that cost him five games, Leeds boss Steve Evans said that fans would see a Chris Wood reborn.

Speaking to the Yorkshire Post, Evans said: ”

“Everyone inside the training camp and the training centre here at Thorp Arch sees it on a daily basis, how much sharper he is looking, how much better he is looking. The performances will be the judge of that but he deserves enormous credit for taking it on board and going and doing it.”

The fans were on his back straight after his misses against Burnley proved to be costly to the Whites, with Leeds going down 1-0 to a first minute Scott Arfield goal. Still, he bounced back with a good performance and an assist in the 2-1 away win at Birmingham and bettered that with two goals and a Man-of-the-Match performance agaisnt Reading yesterday in a 3-2 Leeds win at Elland Road.

Fans took to Twitter to sing the striker’s praises as he moved into double figures, scoring his 10th and 11th goals of the season.
