The 21-year old New Zealand striker, on loan from West Bromwich Albion, showed exactly why there are a number of Championship clubs after his services by giving the Lions a two-goal lead before the hour-mark.
In the 57th minute, Wood made it 2-0 with a fine curling finish after cutting across then penalty area for his tenth league goal of the campaign.
However, the Kiwi youngster's brilliant work was cancelled out as Brighton responded through Kazenga LuaLua just after the hour-mark before David Lopez tied it up with a penalty two minutes from time.
Wood is being tracked by Seagulls manager Gus Poyet who was full of praise for his performance in the post-match.
"He is the kind of player we would like to bring in," Poyet said.
"He's only 21 and I feel he will be a top, top player. When he was with us on loan he was a baby but now he is maturing. He's a man now.
"He's clinical and brave and we have played a part in helping him on his way."
