The Clarets are just five points off sixth-placed Arsenal, which considering the gap in the finances of both clubs, is a tremendous achievement.
"It's a credit to everyone involved at the club, especially the staff and the players, we've all worked hard to put us in a great position and that's what we've done," Wood said of Burnley's league position at this stage.
"It's a great position and hopefully we can capitalise on it.
"That's the aim, to finish as high as possible. The higher up you finish the better you look, so hopefully we can do that."
