Leeds boss Steve Evans sounds a firm warning to Chris Wood

The Leeds head coach has been discussing the strikers available to him at Elland Road.

Leeds United head coach Steve Evans has sounded a firm warning to injury-hit striker Chris Wood about his place in the first team.

Indeed, with United doing very well in the final third without the New Zealander, Evans has emphasised that Wood has to earn any potential recall to the side.

The good news is that the 24-year-old is now fit to play, bolstering Leeds' options.

The warning is a boost for Mirco Antenucci, of course, along with Souleymane Doukara.

The Scot clearly appreciates the solid form Leeds have shown in front of goal recently - with Antenucci in particular in among the goals.

Wood is no longer United's top scorer this season, with the Italian overtaking him in the standings.

If Leeds lead in the second half against Huddersfield, Evans may likely bring Wood on for some game time. But, if the game is in the balance, he could well stick with his original pairing.
