Unanticipated: Nottingham Forest Chris Wood Gets Severe Injury During Practice Ahead Of…

Chris Wood, a striker for Nottingham Forest, will be enjoying the Wolves match following his horrific Tottenham Hotspur miss.

Chris Wood, a forward for Nottingham Forest, is presently having one of his greatest statistical seasons in the Premier League.

Chris Wood will be relishing Wolves game after horror Spurs miss

In 1,281 minutes of top-flight play in 2023–24, he has scored 12 goals in all—a far cry from his lackluster performances at his former club, Newcastle United.

Even though Wood has scored four goals in a row, he is likely to be most remembered for his incredible miss against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend, which stands as the most remarkable miss in Premier League history.

With the goal within reach from less than three yards out, the 32-year-old chose to smash the ball into the post with his strength rather than his positioning. It turned out to be an expensive error.

After 35 minutes, Forest would ultimately lose 3-1 instead of going up 2-1, which puts Nuno Espirito Santo’s team just over average the three lowest on goal differential.

The remaining six games of the season will see Forest play some enormous games against relegation opponents Everton, Sheffield United, and Burnley.

It increases the stakes before their matchup with Wolverhampton Wanderers, another of Nuno’s old teams, at the City Ground on Saturday. Their other opponents are Manchester City and Chelsea.

The numbers point to a goal from Chris Wood versus Wolves.

Personally, Wood may feel that he could not have chosen better opponents given that he will be trying to score in five straight Premier League games for the first time in his career.

Wood has made 17 prior appearances versus Wolves, appearing for as many as six different teams and contributing six goals and three assists. But the majority of those efforts have been made on behalf of one team.

His best showing came during the 2020-21 campaign when he remarkably scored three goals and chipped in with an assist for the other strike in a 4-0 victory for Burnley at Molineux.

That remains his standout performance throughout his Premier League career, and he went through a five-game period for the Clarets and Newcastle against Wolves where he contributed six goals and one assist.

Despite only scoring his first goal against Wolves as recently as 2020, Wood is now only two goal/assist contributions short of his best record against a specific team throughout his career being versus the West Midlands outfit.

Furthermore, Wood has only ever lost two matches in 17 outings against Wolves. The first was at the back-end of the 2016-17 Championship campaign when Leeds United lost 1-0 at Elland Road, the other being in 2018-19 when Burnley lost by the same scoreline at Molineux.

As a result, it means that Wood is now on a nine-match unbeaten streak against Wolves, contributing to four wins and five draws since March 30, 2019.
