Burnley striker Wood sets himself personal goals target

Burnley striker Chris Wood drew some personal satisfaction after scoring in defeat to Southampton yesterday.

With three goals in his last three games, Wood is on target to hit double figures for a fourth successive season at Turf Moor and keep raising the bar in the Premier League stakes.

“Personally, it's a nice achievement but just a bit sour because of how it finished," said the Clarets' leading scorer to the club's website. Wood has bounced back from injury to move to seven goals for the campaign.

“It would have been nice to take home the three points, or at least a point after the first 30 minutes.

“Hopefully I've got a lot more goals in me. But I'm sure Barnesy has too.

“He's chomping at the bit to get back fit so I'm sure he will be back challenging me again very soon.

“It's a positive run and hopefully there are a lot more to come before the end of the season."
