Chris Wood makes goalscoring return in Leeds friendly, report updates Diagouraga's injury

Leeds United are set for injury boosts from Chris Wood, Liam Cooper and Toumani Diagouraga.

Leeds striker Chris Wood scored in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Peterborough United as he steps up his recovery from injury, and the Yorkshire Evening Post add that Liam Cooper and Toumani Diagouraga should be fit to face Huddersfield Town this weekend.

Wood, 24, arrived from Leicester City last summer, and has hit eight goals in a decent return this season, but has played just 60 minutes of action since suffering an injury against Derby County on the 29th of December.

A recent hamstring strain has kept Wood sidelined, and whilst he made an appearance as a substitute in Leeds' 2-1 win over Blackburn on Saturday afternoon, the New Zealand international is stepping up his recovery even further ahead of this weekend's game against Huddersfield Town.

On Tuesday, Wood played 60 minutes and scored in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Peterborough United, a match which Leeds lost 3-2.

Additionally, manager Steve Evans is also set to be handed two more injury boosts, as defender Liam Cooper completed a full training session on Tuesday, having missed the game against Blackburn, whilst midfielder Toumani Diagouraga has also overcome an injury to be passed fit to face Huddersfield.

That now gives Evans something closer to a full bill of health, but after three wins in a row, the Leeds boss may have some big selection decisions to make ahead of Saturday's clash.

Do you think Wood should start against Huddersfield?
