We'll build on new attacking dimension, says Leicester City midfielder Andy King
New striker Chris Wood has given Leicester City an extra dimension to their attacking play, says midfielder Andy King.
Twenty-one-year-old Wood scored his third goal in just two appearances since his arrival from West Brom a week ago as City beat Burton Albion 2-0 to progress into the fourth round of the FA Cup.
The New Zealander opened the scoring after just three minutes and was a constant menace to the Brewers defence.
King said Wood had made a big impact with his team-mates, and added: "Chris has been brilliant.

"He has scored a lot of goals this season and if he can keep that going for us, it will give us a big boost.
"He adds a different dimension to our play with his size and his goals. We should look to build on that.
"You can see he has an eye for goal and has scored early in his first two games. You look at his tally for the season and he is up there with the top scorers in the league.
"He links the play well but also works hard, which everyone at this club does.
"I think that gives us all a lift when you have strikers pressing defenders. It gives the team the emphasis to go on and do that as well."
King said Wood's goal was important as it gave City the momentum to see off the Brewers and atone for their shock Capital One Cup defeat against the same opposition in August.
"Everyone remembers that game as one of our worst performances of the season but, most of all, it was about getting through to the next round and I think we did that professionally," said King.
"We showed really good quality and deserved to go through.
"August was one of those freak results. They had four shots on goal and scored all of them and their keeper had a great day.
"Scoring early (on Saturday) gave us the platform to go on and dominate the game."
