Burnley

Premier League milestone welcomed by Wood

16th April 2019, 11:55 by Nick Harris

Chris Wood says he is delighted to have reached double figures in goals for Burnley in the Premier League this term.

Between New Zealand international Wood and his strike-partner Ashley Barnes, the Clarets now have two players to have scored 10 or more in the Premier League for the first time ever in their five-year stay in the top flight.

The pair have now netted more this season than they did in the previous campaign when the Clarets finished in a Europa League spot, and Wood is pleased to have gone past the double-figure mark.

"It's fantastic (to reach 10 league goals), its another little milestone for myself. Having two strikers around the double figures mark is fantastic for the club. It's put us in a good position," Wood said.

Wood netted in last Saturday's win over Cardiff, a result which means Burnley are almost certain to be playing Premier League football again next season and Wood is thankful of that.

"We've had a good few weeks," he told the Lancashire Telegraph.

"It is nice to get three wins on the bounce. We're almost there now but not quite."
