West Brom's Wood looking to kick on after breaking Bristol duck

Chris Wood was thrilled to get off the mark so early in his loan spell with Bristol City and is now looking to kick on.

The 20-year old New Zealand international, who joined the Robins from West Bromwich Albion earlier this month, scored the opener in last Saturday's 2-1 home win over Doncaster Rovers and admitted it was a great feeling to net in just his second start for the club.

"It's always nice to get off the mark early and I'm glad I did that but the important thing is that we got the three points," he told the Bristol City Player.

"It was a great cross from (Cole) Skuse; he just picked me out and I didn't really have to do much. It was just a tap in really.

"It was my sort of goal, I like to get in and around the box. I don't mind a goal from distance either but generally most of my goals come from closer in."

And Wood, who had a successful loan stint with Birmingham City earlier this season, was hoping to recreate that form when Bristol head to the Madejski Stadium to take on Reading tomorrow.

"I played them earlier in the season for Birmingham and it wasn't a good result. We dominated for much of that game and lost out to a breakaway," he added.

"Hopefully I can put that right this weekend. I'd love to get one there."
