Wood’s strike a sign of things to come

The 20-year-old, who has played twice for the Championship side since arriving on loan from West Bromwich Albion, is keen to again be on the scoresheet when the Lions travel to Burnley on Saturday.
“I’ve played at Turf Moor a couple of times before and I think I’ve drawn twice there previously,” he says.
“It’s a nice big pitch and I’m looking forward to playing up there. It was good to get my first goal last weekend and hopefully that’s a sign of more things to come.”
While Wood was delighted to score on his first full Millwall debut in the narrow 2-1 defeat to Brighton, he believes he was unlucky not to have snatched a late equaliser.
After helping the ten-man Lions back into the match in the 79th minute, he nearly added another in injury time when connecting with a deep cross from Alan Dunne but was denied by a crucial block from goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak.
“It was nice to get my first goal but it’s tough to have not put the next chance away. It was a chance that I think I should be taking,” he says.
“It’s something I’ll look back on. He’s made a great save so I can’t be too disheartened.
“They were both on my left side and on my left foot.You always try and make the right connection with the ball, which I did, but he got in the way of it.”
