Wood: There's More To Come!

23 February 2019

Ten-goal Chris Wood hailed his partnership with Ashley Barnes as both players scored crucial goals in the victory over Spurs.

Wood reached double figures for the second successive season with the opener against the Londoners, with Barnes grabbing his ninth to snatch all three points late on.

That is the third time in four games the deadly duo have bene on the target together, following the draw at Manchester United and win at Brighton.

And Wood believes there is still plenty more to come from the partnership.

The New Zealand striker said: “I’m pleased with double figures and hopefully there’s a lot more to come before the end of the season.

“I’m sure Barnesy and I will be looking to get as many as we can. We have a good relationship together at the moment and long may it continue.

“We are on a good run at the moment and we feel we can beat anybody on our day.

“We’ve climbed up the league again, but still nowhere near where we would like to be.

“We want to get ourselves well away from this relegation zone as soon as possible and if we can get a few more wins of the board we can hopefully look up, rather than down.”

Barnes, who has matched last season’s tally of nine goals – and has now scored against all of the Premier League ‘big six’, added: “It’s obviously a massive win for the whole squad because this is down to the whole team.

“They keep it tight and provide the service and Woody and I are working hard to finish them off.

“We have a little competition going and I’m only one behind. He’s on my case for that, but I’ll come back for sure!”
