Chris Wood can fire Leicester City to glory, says Ben Marshall
Chris Wood holds the key to victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers tonight as Leicester City look to cement their place in the automatic promotion spots, midfielder Ben Marshall believes.
Wood is in fantastic form having scored seven goals in his first five games since joining City from West Bromwich Albion and Marshall believes the New Zealander is among the best strikers in the Championship.
Tonight he is likely to come up against young Wolves defender Danny Batth, who is set to make his full league debut, and Wood could give him a baptism of fire.
"He just always seems to be in the right place at the right time," said wide-man Marshall, who will be looking to supply the ammunition.

"That is what you need from a striker. His goals are the difference at the moment. Hopefully, he can carry on making the difference for us in the promotion run.
"I don't see him as a target man. He is more. For me, when I come inside, I look up and he is making runs. It makes it a lot easier for me to find him.
"His goal record at the moment is fantastic. That is what he can do and, for me, he is one of the best strikers in the Championship.
"Hopefully he can push on and fire us up there."
Marshall believes Wolves' struggles in the Championship following their relegation from the Premier League was an indication of the improvement in the Championship.
"The Championship is getting a lot better," said Marshall.
"Teams aren't coming down and going straight back up. "When teams do go up they are staying up because the standard is better.
"It doesn't surprise me in a way that they have struggled but Wolves are a big club and they should be a lot higher than they are.
"But that is their problem, not ours, and we have to concentrate on what we do. It is our chance to put a marker down. "It is massively important we win. Not so much to put the pressure on others but just for us because we are there in the automatic promotion spots and it is up to us to stay there.
"Hopefully, we will be able to do that until the end of the season."
