Leeds United's Chris Wood scores their second goal

Leeds United striker Chris Wood has told The Yorkshire Evening Post that it is impossible to score in each and every game.

Wood made the comments in the light of Leeds’s defeat to Newcastle United at home last weekend.

Although the Whites had chances against the Magpies, they failed to score and went down 2-0 to Rafael Benitez’s side at Elland Road in the Championship.

Wood, who has been in good form so far this season, has admitted that it is impossible for him to score in each and every game.

The 24-year-old New Zealand international striker, though, has stated that he tries to find other ways of contributing to the team.

“It’s one of those things – you can’t score in every game,” Wood told The Yorkshire Evening Post. “As much as I’d love to, as much as anyone would, it’s physically impossible.

“So it’s all about contributing in other ways and contributing to the team performance to get a result, even if it’s not your day.”

Wood has scored eight goals and created 15 chances in 16 Championship appearances for Leeds so far this season.

The former West Bromwich Albion and Leicester City striker has firmly established himself in Garry Monk’s side at Elland Road.

The West Yorkshire outfit are seventh in the Championship table at the moment with 26 points from 17 matches, just a point behind sixth-placed Norwich City.
