Chris Wood helped Leicester City move six points clear at the top of the Championship table on the weekend.

The New Zealand striker scored the Foxes’ second goal in their 2-0 victory over second-placed Burnley at Turf Moor in the top-of-the-table clash on Saturday.

David Nugent opened the scoring for Leicester in the 35th minute when Wood, who had replaced Jamie Vardy a minute earlier, had found him with a neat cut-back pass.

The Foxes continued to chase a second goal against the Clarets and thankfully for Nigel Pearson’s men, it came with just over ten minutes remaining when Wood fired home a volley, to give his side a six-point breather over the weekend’s opponents.

The goal was Wood’s fourth of the campaign, in his 20th appearance, which has included just four starts as Leicester chase the Championship title as well as automatic promotion to the Premier League.
