Wood will fight for Leicester City chance

Chris Wood, the striker for English Championship club Leicester City has stated that he is still learning his trade and striving for more perfection as he targets more starts under manager Nigel Pearson as the Foxes look to mount yet another challenge to get back to the Premier League.

The 21 year old has made only three starts for the Foxes this season as he finds himself behind experienced heads like David Nugent and Jamie Vardy in the striking options for Nigel Pearson. And speaking to BBC Radio Leicester, the youngster stated that he knows he still has to do the basics and make absolutely sure that his game is perfect.

He knows that he has to do his work on the pitch adding that he would love to get a start, get on the score sheet and take things forward from there. But he admitted that as long as that doesn’t happen, he will have to put his head down and work hard in order to get in favor of the boss and given the chance, he will try and help Leicester City in their fight for promotion.
Nugent and Vardy have already got eight and four goals respectively and that makes things very difficult for the youngster who will not only have to displace two experience players but also, two players who are in fine form.

But Wood mentioned that he has never been one to shy away from a challenge and he knows that apart from working hard, he will have to patient for his chance.

The striker moved to Leicester City in January 2013 from West Bromwich Albion and is considered among the brightest prospects in English football. It is how the Championship club and Pearson use him that will make or break a future England player.
