Former Leeds United forward Chris Wood has revealed one of his favourite goals was his strike against Newcastle United last season.
Wood is no longer at Leeds United after joining Burnley in the last transfer window, but still included a few Leeds strikes in his favourites.
Asked by the New Zealand Herald which are the most memorable goals he’s scored prior to his transfer to Turf Moor, the 25 year old selected his effort for Leeds against Newcastle United in April:
“In the 95th minute, some lovely work by Pablo Hernandez on the ball got it to Kemar Roofe, and with a nice turn and early cross, I found myself in loads of space to guide it home. In front of 4000 Leeds fans and 50,000 upset Newcastle fans, it was a goal I won’t forget.”
Newcastle United were one of Wood’s many victims last season when he finished the season as the Championship’s top scorer. The New Zealand international in total scored 30 goals for Leeds United in the last campaign, including his late effort at St James Park.
Wood’s performances for Leeds United last season earned him another chance at Premier League football when he signed for Burnley in August, and the forward scored on his debut against Tottenham Hotspur.
