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

Leeds United may have beaten Cardiff City but questions remain over Chris Wood's display.


Alex Mowatt produced a moment of magic to inspire Leeds United to a 1-0 win over Cardiff City.

His second half shot from the edge of the box flew into the top corner, and he celebrated his first goal of the season with all the passion you might expect.

One player who blew his big chance to get on the scoresheet was big money signing Chris Wood, who spurned a late opportunity to double Leeds' advantage.

The Whites were glad to record their first home win of the season, but if Leeds had conceded a late equaliser then Wood's miss would have been costly.

He has scored five goals this season but has netted only once under Steve Evans, with that strike coming against Fulham from the penalty spot.

Fortunately for him, with Evans preferring to play with two strikers, Leeds do not possess credible competition to put him under pressure for his place, which may be something the head coach seeks to address in the loan market over the coming week, while Lee Erwin is also due to return from his loan at Bury.

Leeds need Wood to start being a consistent goal threat, and that can happen when wingers Jordan Botaka and Will Buckley are given regular starts and establish themselves in the team, but missing point blank efforts is all on him.

Here is a look at how fans reacted to his display...
