Chris Wood delighted with Leicester City debut
Leicester City's new signing Chris Wood says his performance against Huddersfield was probably the best debut he's ever had.
The 21-year-old scored two first-half goals as his side romped to a 6-1 victory over Huddersfield Town.
The £2 million striker, who had already bagged 11 goals in 19 appearances while on loan at Millwall, could not have got his day off to a better start when he nodded in from close range after just six minutes.
He doubled his tally 20 minutes later when he fired in after good link-up play with partner David Nugent.

Wood could easily have secured a debut hat-trick as a number of chances drifted wide, including an effort in the dying seconds which saw him fire over from the edge of the area.
"I think this was probably the best debut I've had," said the 21-year-old. "It's always nice to get on the scoresheet but, more importantly, we got the three points.
"I have come here to score goals and that's what I did today and, hopefully, I can carry on doing that. But as long as we get the three points, that is the major thing and we did that today.
"Hopefully, I can keep scoring goals. There are no guarantees in football but I would like to think that I have the ability to score goals.
"We will see how it goes but it doesn't matter who scores, as long as we get the three points."
His understanding with Nugent up front made it look as though they had been playing together for their entire careers.
This was beautifully encapsulated for his second goal when a lovely one-two sent Nugent clear. City's leading scorer pulled the ball back to the waiting Wood, who calmly slotted it home.
"He is a good player and that is what makes it so simple," said Wood. "He has been around the game and he helped me out a lot.
"I am still a young lad and he has got a lot of experience that I can work off and learn from. He made it easy for me to fit right into the team.
"There are still little bits that we need to work on, but that will come in time and, hopefully, we will be able to get a good partnership going."
