Wood has winning touch

The former Waikato FC frontman helped the Lions into the lead before the interval following a cross by strike partner Darius Henderson and he made it 2-0 with a well-taken goal on the counter-attack, before assisting in the build-up to the third goal, scored by James Henry.
It was Millwall’s biggest win, and first clean sheet of the season, and Wood says he is pleased to be part of it.
“I’m enjoying my football and creating chances as well as scoring goals,” he says.
“It’s working out well with Darius. He’s strong, physical and he has one hell of a shot on him.”
Millwall is the fifth club Wood has played for on loan since moving to England in 2008 and he has proven himself as a regular goal scorer – registering five goals in eight matches since his loan move from West Bromwich Albion in September.
And manager Kenny Jackett is pleased to have the Kiwi with his side, no matter how long he stays with the club.
“There hasn’t been any negotiation and we’re just concentrating on the games at the moment,” Jackett says.
“We’ve kept in touch with some very good people at West Brom. They’re very keen to see how he’s doing.
“We have him up until Christmas. With regular football we believe he has it in him. That was why I brought him to the club in the first place.”
