It’s been a remarkable season for Leeds United, who are in their best position for a potential Premier League return since losing the Play-Off final to Watford over a decade ago now.
Not much was expected of Garry Monk’s side after a poor start to the campaign, though the Whites currently sit fourth in the table. However, with so much still to play for, recent reports surrounding star striker Chris Wood have caused concern.
Vitally important to Leeds’ cause this season, the 25-year-old striker has notched 24 goals in the league to propel their promotion charge. So the news he’d be returning to Yorkshire early as a result of an injury scare on international duty has sent fear into Twitter users.
With crunch clashes against promotion rivals Reading and Newcastle United on the horizon, fans online are begging Wood’s ailment isn’t too serious at all.

If Wood has a bad injury, Fiji may just have denied #lufc promotion. Of all the things…

I think Chris wood being sent home as a 'precaution' may have been pre-arranged by Garry…let's hope so #lufc
