Leeds United fans react on Twitter to Chris Wood's performance v Ipswich

Chris Wood of Leicester City

Leeds United striker Chris Wood struggled to make an impact against Ipswich.

Leeds United suffered their first league defeat of the season last night, going down 1-0 at home to Ipswich Town.

The manner of the loss was particularly disappointing, with Leeds only managing one single shot on target, via Mirco Antenucci.

A concerning aspect of that was £3 million summer signing Chris Wood was anonymous, attempting just the one shot.

He has had a mixed start to the season, his highlight being a spectacular late winner against Derby County, but last night he underwhelmed.

Part of the problem was a lack of quality service, with Leeds playing a narrow style with only one winger - Stuart Dallas - on the pitch.

To his credit he did manage to provide three key passes for his teammates, winning two aerial duels.

Yet in games like this, Leeds need a striker they spent big money on to become more of a handful for defenders, and just like against Brentford at the weekend he was easily contained.

Whether down to head coach Uwe Rosler, or Chris Wood himself, Leeds need to find a way to let the striker be more effective, and start having more of a forceful impact on games.

Here is a look at how Leeds fans reacted to his performance...
